ICANN Domain Transfer Policies Updated
Posted by Seth   on 01 December 2016 05:30 PM

ICANN, the corporation in charge of domain name assignments and management has created a new policy for transferring domain ownership. This new policy will affect ALL domain registrars and companies who use them, not just Hostica. These are the new changes that have gone into effect as stated by ICANN and Tucows:

  • It will no longer be possible to change the registrant of a domain name with a simple domain modification request.
  • Any changes to first name, last name, organization or email address fields for the owner of any gTLD domain name will now start a trade process.
  • The process involves obtaining explicit confirmation from current and new registrants before a change can be completed.
  • After a change of registrant has been completed, previous and new registrant will receive a confirmation notice informing them that the change has completed
  • After a change of registrant has been completed, the domain is by default locked for transfers to a new registrar for the following 60 days

Due to these changes, you will want to make sure that all information given on your domain name registration is 100%. If anything is off during a transfer it could potentially delay the transfer process. If you need assistance please contact us via live chat or our billing system.
