Registrars can set options in our Online Service to customize how the EPP and the Web Domain Manager work. These options will affect all of the tools on a tag. Below are the options that can be set:
- Handshake options
This determines how domain names are accepted on to the registrar's tag. There are four settings. If a handshake is required when a registrar change is requested, an email is sent to the notification address for the registrar (or a poll notification). Registrar change requests not authorised within 5 days are automatically rejected. The default setting in Online Service is ‘Always accept’.
- Tag notification options
This determines how you receive notifications from Nominet about changes to domain names or accounts on your tag.
|Always accept registrar changes to your tag||All requests for a registrar change to the tag are automatically accepted.|
|Only handshake if new customer, otherwise accept registrar changes to your tag||Requests for a registrar change on to an existing account on the tag (i.e. an account number is given as part of the tag change) are accepted automatically, all other requests result in a handshake.|
|Always handshake||All requests for a registrar change to the tag result in a handshake.|
|Always reject registrar changes to your tag||All requests for a registrar change to the tag are rejected.|
