The registry nic.at will introduce one and two character domains directly under .at (Austria) in three phases, starting August 2016.
All one and two character combinations of numbers and alphabetic characters (including the 34 IDN characters) will be released. Excluded are those domains which are already in use for 3rd level domains or name servers (ac.at, or.at, co.at, gv.at and ns.at).
Basic information is already available on the website of the registry.
.AT is the official country code Top-Level-Domain (ccTLD) of Austria.
An .AT Domain is normally used by companies or private entities who are located in Austria or who have business relationships with Austria.
- Minimum: 3 (Sub Level Domains like .co.at and or.at 1)
- Maximum: 63
- Letters and numbers
- Hyphens ("-"), however not at the beginning or directly in front of the TLD
Latin character set
.AT domains can be registered online through the web interface or API command.

In order to change the registrant of an .AT domain you have to complete the following steps:
- Request a trade for the domain in our system with the TradeDomain command.
(required) command = TradeDomain domain = yourdomain.at ownercontact0 = (new owner-contact)
- Go to http://pdf.rrpproxy.net or http://www.formgenerator.net and generate the required form (Request for Change of Domain Holder).
- Send a signed copy of this form to the fax number indicated on top of it or as .pdf by mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (max. 10MB).
The owner change will be processed by our system within 1-2 days. The registration period will not be affected. Trade requests expire after 10 days.
As .AT domains can only be registered on a yearly basis, they cannot be renewed explicitly. To renew an .AT domain you have to set the domain renewal mode or default renewal mode to "AUTORENEW" or "RENEWONCE".
.AT Domains can be deleted online through the webinterfac or corresponding API command.
(required) command = DeleteDomain domain = yourdomain.at
- min. 2 / max. 8 nameservers
- P.O. box not allowed as owner address
- No other restrictions
Please take note that new policies will apply from April 15th 2015 in reference to an EU-Customerpolicy.
It regulates, among other consumer-information requirements for Electronic Contracts.
In Austria it is regulated in Konsumentenschutzgesetz (KSchG) and Fern- and Auswärtsgeschäfte-Gesetz (FAGG), in other EU-Countries in their national law.
This right applies to all individuals who are holders of an .AT domain, regardless of their country of origin.
Because according to austrian law by registering an .AT Domain a contract comes between Domain-Holder and NIC.at.
The customer needs to be fully informed about the product, the price, conditions, suppliers etc. before, during and after the order as well as there need to be information about his right to withdraw.
You can find all changes here!
.AT Transfers are possible. Please note that when a .AT Domain is transferred successfully, the remaining registration period is kept. The domains will not be extended by one year.
You can initiate a .AT domain transfer either through the RRPproxy WebInterface or API.
- Transfer request + AuthInfo = Standard process immediate transfer!
A transfer request containing an AuthInfo will be processed immediately.
(required) command = TransferDomain domain = yourdomain.at auth = … action = Request
[RESPONSE] code = 200 description = Command completed successfully queuetime = 0 runtime = 1.634 property[transfer status] = SUCCESS
- Transfer request WITHOUT AuthInfo = Emergency Processes
Only in special cases.
(required) command = TransferDomain domain = yourdomain.at action = Request x-at-requestauthcode = 1
[RESPONSE] code = 200 description = Command completed successfully; TOKEN REQUESTED queuetime = 0 runtime = 2.817 property[info] = Auth code sent to owner, please submit your request including the auth code
The authInfo will need to have at least eight characters consisting of one number, one alphabet and one special character.
In the standard AuthInfo process the domain holder who wants to change the registrar, requests an AuthInfo from the losing registrar and forwards it to the new registrar. By sending a transfer request containing the AuthInfo, the new registrar takes over the domain. The transfer is processed immediately
If the AuthInfo standard procedure does not work, there are two emergency methods for these special cases. The special case token-request and the Emergency-process if the domain holder's e-mail address is not working. If the Emergency-process is required, please contact email@example.com.
Token-request for a domain transfer
The new registrar requests a token by sending an EPP transfer command where the AuthInfo field does not contain a value. nic.at sends a token code to the e-mail address of the domain holder. This token is valid for 21 days and is only valid for this specific registrar. The domain holder will have to forward the token code to the new registrar. The new registrar will then send a transfer request containing the token code he has received from the holder. The transfer is processed within approximately 5 minutes.
A transfer is done immediately.
Restores are possible within 59 days after deletion if the domain was deleted explicitly with the DeleteDomain command or set to "AUTODELETE".
Restores are not possible if the domain was set to "AUTOEXPIRE" or was pushed back to the registry with the PushDomain command.
A restore for a deleted domain can be requested via API command or via webinterface.
(required) command = restoredomain domain = yourdomain.at
Please note: The restore request will be manually processed by our support team. You will be notified by email.
