New ICANN Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy


According to the regulations introduced by the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names & Numbers (ICANN) starting from the 1st of December 2016, a new Transfer Policy will be in effect for all registrars.

Please take note that we will be updating our standard Terms and Conditions, which all contracts operate under, in order to comply with the new requirements for the registration and management of Generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs). This update will take effect on the 1st of December 2016.

The domain registrar that we contracted with is Internet Domain Services BS Corp.

From December 1st, ICANN have mandated that for all gTLDs (such as .xyz and .com), a "material change" to the Ownership information for a domain will be required. This information will need to be approved by both the old owner and the new owner of the domain before the change is made.

A 60-day registrar transfer lock must also be applied after any change, which it is hoped will help to minimise instances of domain theft. As part of the policy, domain owners may appoint a "Designated Agent" to approve the changes on their behalf; our policy updates are being made to allow "Internet Domain Service BS Corp" to act as your "Designated Agent" in all instances.

Our approach to implement this policy is:
- To design the required processes in a way that meets policy terms and withstands an ICANN audit.
- To minimize the impact on our customers.
- To leverage policy options such as the “Designated Agent” or transfer-lock opt-outs to streamline

   the process and reduce registrant/customer impact as much as possible.


You will also have the option to opt out of the 60-day registrar transfer lock by contacting our support team here:

The following additional term constitutes the change to our terms and conditions:

You agree and authorise Internet Domain Service BS Corp and WPX Hosting to act as your “Designated Agent” with respect to the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy (IRTP) (https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/registrars/transfers-en) for all gTLD domains.

You agree that as your “Designated Agent” we have the explicit authority to approve and accept each “Change of Registrant” (as per the IRTP) on your behalf, whether this change represents a change from your Registrant information or to your Registrant information, and will do so in all instances.

You accept that authorising us to act as your Designated Agent is a condition of registering or managing your domain with Internet Domain Service BS Corp and WPX Hosting.
