ELIGIBILITY:

To register, renew, or accept the transfer of a .HOMES domain name, registrant be an individual or a legal entity with a bona-fide nexus to the .HOMES sector. This connection means that You as the registrant of the domain name must be able to reasonably demonstrate a link or an interest to the Relevant Sector at the time of registration and throughout the duration of the .HOMES domain name registration.

Furthermore you need a Nexus to the relevant Sector. Please find more information regarding the relevant Sector in the registration policy.

Registrants must undergo a verification process once a domain name has been registered. Registrants will receive an email from Dominion Registries with the request to provide the required information. The verification process must be completed within 15 days of registration, or the domain name will be rejected.


Transfers

Transfer procedure </span>

command = TransferDomain
domain  = domain.homes
action  = request
auth    = [......]

  • After the transfer has been requested, our backend system sends a confirmation email to the Owner/Admin-C according to the WHOIS of the respective domain. In order to initiate the transfer successfully it is important, that this email is confirmed.
  • After confirmation the transfer is initiated through the official registry and the losing registrar will receive the transfer request.
  • The losing registrar will also send an email to the Owner/Admin-C. allowing him/her to deny the transfer. If you do not respond to the email of the losing registrar, then the transfer will get processed successfully after 5 days.

Attention.png

If the Email-Address in the WHOIS is invalid, then the transfer cannot be processed.If this is the case, then kindly contact your current registrar and ask him to update the WHOIS information accordingly.

Transfer notes

  • A .HOMES Domain Transfer must be initiated with a so-called Authorisation Code, which can be obtained from the current registrar through the owner or Admin-C of the domain.
  • Ensure that your respective domain does not have a lock-status (REGISTRAR-LOCK or HOLD). This can be seen in the WHOIS. If the domain is locked, then the owner can demand that this be unlocked.
  • Please note that we are only allowed to initiate a gTLD transfer after confirmation of the "ICANN Form of Authorization" by the current registrant. The policies can be viewed under http://www.icann.org/transfers/
  • Please ensure that the domain is older than 60 days otherwise the transfer will be denied.
