Wednesday, December 7, 2016On December 1, 2016, ICANN enacted a new domain registration transfer policy preventing domains from being transferred within 60 days of WhoIS registrant changes. The new policy has been imposed on all registrars and, as an ICANN-accredited registrar, we’ve taken all due steps to implement it throughout our system.
We will now be unable to transfer domain registration to a different registrar if any WhoIS information has been modified within 60 days prior to the transfer request. This would include any changes to first name, last name, organization or email address fields for the owner of the domain, called the domain registrant.
The implementation will affect all domain registrants who attempt to make modifications to the Whois contact information of their domain names. This includes changes to the registrant’s name, organization or email address.
