Domain Registration

.SG domains can be registered online through webinterface or API.
However a special parameter has to be given:

[COMMAND]
(required)                
command         = AddDomain
domain          = yourdomain.sg
ownercontact0   = [owner handle]
admincontact0   = [admin contact]
techcontact0    = [tech contact]
billingcontact0 = [billing contact]
nameserver0     = [nameserver1]
nameserver1     = [nameserver2]
X-SG-RCBID      = [RegNumber]
                (optional)                      
X-SG-ADMIN-SINGPASSID = [X1234567X|SingPassID]
                      
EOF


X-SG-RCBID (mandatory):

  • For companies located in Singapore, the corresponding company registration number has to be given by all means.
  • For Singapore citizens and permanent residents, please provide NRIC or Passport No.
  • For Singapore companies, please provide RCBID as it appears in RCB Certificate.
  • For Singapore societies, please provide RCBID as it appears in ROS Certificate.
  • For companies outside of Singapore the business number is required, please provide the business number in the RCBID field.

The use of trustee service does NOT prevent the registrant from providing the business number. The trustee service has only the function of a local presence service which is also mandatory for the registration of a domain name.


X-SG-ADMIN-SINGPASSID - If the admin contact is a natural person located in Singapore, the corresponding Singapore Personal Access ID has to be given.

The format of the SingPassID is:
X1234567X - where X is an upper case letter at the beginning and end of a seven digit string
In case of a foreign organization, it is possible to use the SGNICID:
SGNICID-X12-345678 - the SGNICID will look like this example

with Trustee

[COMMAND]
(required)                        
command                 = AddDomain
domain                  = yourdomain.sg
ownercontact0           = [owner handle]
admincontact0           = [admin contact]
techcontact0            = [tech contact]
billingcontact0         = [billing contact]
nameserver0             = [nameserver1]
nameserver1             = [nameserver2]
X-SG-ACCEPT-TRUSTEE-TAC = 1
                        
EOF

Please note:
The trustee service has to be used if:

  • the registrant and admin are not located in Singapore.
  • the registrant is an organization located in Singapore and the admin is not located in Singapore.

If you are using JP as country code in one of the contact handles (owner, admin, tech or billing contact), the field "phone" has to be in the following format: +countrycode.areacode.phone


Verification

SGNIC requires all new .sg domain names registered from 2 May 2013 to undergo compulsory verification using SingPass/CorpPass. The verification is to be carried out by the administrative contact of a domain name, to verify the identity and contact information of the registrant after registration and transfer of ownership (trade), or change of the administrative contact. If you are not using the KS-Trustee solution, the verification involves two steps:

a) login to SingPass or CorpPass and

b) click on a “Verify Identity” button.

The administrative contact will be given a grace period of 21 calendar days from the date of registration to verify the registrant’s identity and contact information. If the administrative contact has not done this after the grace period, SGNIC will suspend the domain name.

If you are using the KS-Trustee solution, the steps above will done by our fulfillment team automatically.
