ICANN has implemented a new Transfer Policy which affects all ICANN-accredited registrars. The Transfer Policy takes effect from 1 December 2016.
Here are some of the key aspects that are part of the new Transfer Policy :
- A Form of Authorization, or FOA, is the email that is sent to the registered name holder when a domain transfer is initiated to approve the request. The FOA will now expire after 60 days if the transfer is not completed.
- The FOA is void if the domain name expires before approval.
Inter-Registrant Transfers (WHOIS update/change)
- If a material change is made, we must collect consent from both the Prior Registrant and the New Registrant, prior to making the requested change, even if you represent both parties. A "material change" is a change in the name, company or email address listed for the registrant contact.
- If the Prior Registrant and New Registrant do not confirm the change within 60 days of the request, the change implementation will not proceed.
- Once both Prior and New Registrant parties agree to the requested contact changes, the information will be updated 1 day after.For more information about this change, you can refer to the official announcement from the ICANN website:
We strongly recommend that you keep your WHOIS information up to date and ensure access to the registrant and administrative email is always secure and accessible. If there is a change in your information, such as email address, it is imperative the change be updated in Whois.
