The past 1 of December of entered in force a new policy of ICANN (highest authority in the matter of domains), that affects to the process of transfer of generic domains (as .com, .net or .org) and ngTLD (as .bike, .club or .pub) and to its changes of ownership. Between its main new features, it emphasizes the necessity to count on the express acceptance of the holders when a change of titling takes place (company name, names, direction of e-mail€¦). As much the previous holder as the new holder will have to approve the change.

Main new features

These are the most important changes that they add some complexities in the proceedings that until now were immediate:

  • A blockade of 60 days for the transfer of domains after a registry, transfer or change of ownership of a domain.
  • Express acceptance on the part of the holders, the present and new holder of the domain, the change of titling.

Despite the new directive he allows the figure of €œdesignated Agent€ and the recording agents are making use of her to accept the change of ownership without the previous approval. In its place an informative email will be sent to both holders and the domain will be blocked for its transfer during 60 days.

Any operation regarding the domain will communicate to the direction of email of the proprietor. It is important that the direction works and could simply lose the right ones on a domain because an email has not been received.
