ICANN has introduced a new policy, which will come into effect as of 1 December 2016. With the aim of tackling abuse when transferring domain names. What is this all about?
The new policy applies to all gTLDs, i. e. both traditional domain extensions, such as .com, .net or .biz, and new domain extensions, including .gent, .vlaanderen, .brussels, .guru, .shop, .xyz… (check out the list of available extensions).
The new policy will come into effect when you update the contact details of the domain holder or registrant. (first name and/or last name of the person, name of the organisation, e-mail address of the domain holder) If the registrant’s e-mail address is unknown, the e-mail address of the administrative contact is taken into account.
So, this applies both when you update the contact details of the existing domain holder and when you transfer a domain name to a new registrant.
From now on, the registrar with which the domain was registered (e.g. Combell) will have to send an e-mail (“Form of Authorization”) to both the old and the new e-mail address, asking them to approve this change.
When the registrar receives approval from both the old and the new e-mail address, it must complete the change within one day.
Once the transfer is complete, the registrars must trigger a 60-day transfer lock. During this period, the domain name cannot be transferred to another registrar. However, the registrant is allowed to ask his registrar (before the transfer) not to trigger this lock.
If you plan to change your contact details or transfer the domain name to another person, check your mailbox for a notification from firstname.lastname@example.org and make sure you send your approval as quickly as possible. When you transfer your domain name, you should also inform the new registrant that he will receive this e-mail and that he should answer it immediately.
