Accredited and self-managed TAGS

Instructions to transfer or modify registrant name

If you have an accredited TAG, or are self-managed, you have the ability to transfer domain names between registrants. For accredited tags, you also have the ability to correct the registrant name if it needs correcting. For example a spelling mistake or a change of name. Previously this could only be done by the registrant.

Transfer

Please be aware that the following command should be used for registrant transfers as it will transfer an individual domain name.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?> <epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0"

 xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

 xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0 epp-1.0.xsd">

  <command>

    <update>

      <domain:update

       xmlns:domain="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:domain-1.0"

                   xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:domain-1.0 domain-1.0.xsd">

        <domain:name>example.co.uk</domain:name>

        <domain:chg>

          <domain:registrant>NEWREGISTRANTID</domain:registrant>

        </domain:chg>

      </domain:update>

    </update>

    <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>

  </command>

</epp>

 

This will transfer the domain name example.co.uk to the contact stated within <domain:registrars>. If the registrant is new to you, you will first need to create the contact, and transfer the domain name to the new contact.

Modify

Accredited tags can update registrant names. Please note that this is a contact level modification so will affect every domain name that uses that contact ID

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?> <epp xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0"

 xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

 xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:epp-1.0 epp-1.0.xsd">

  <command>

    <update>

      <contact:update

       xmlns:contact="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0"

       xsi:schemaLocation="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:contact-1.0 contact-1.0.xsd">

        <contact:id>EPPCONTACTID</contact:id>

        <contact:chg>

          <contact:postalInfo type="int">

            <contact:org>CORRECT REGISTRANT</contact:org>

          </contact:postalInfo>

          <contact:authInfo>

            <contact:pw></contact:pw>

          </contact:authInfo>

        </contact:chg>

      </contact:update>

    </update>

    <clTRID>ABC-12345</clTRID>

  </command>

</epp>
