ownercontact0   = .....
admincontact0   = .....
techcontact0    = .....
billingcontact0 = .....
nameserver0     = .....
nameserver1     = .....

Please note:
Nameservers for the domains must be pre-configured and registered with ISNIC.
The holder doens't receive any email anymore

If the customer is not able to provide his own nameservers, which have to be registered at you can use ours:

   Registrations have always a one year period.
   Time To Live (TTL) for the NS records must be 86400 seconds (24 hours) or longer (is now 28800 sec)
   28800 sec is the default value and has to be changed to 1d (86400 sec)

The registration happens max. 1 hour later from the time the domain is paid for .

Domain Modification


Registrant changes for .IS domains can be done via API or webinterface. The exp. date of the domain will not be changed.

command       = ModifyDomain
domain        =

The confirmation of ownerchange has been automated!

Domain Renewal

As .IS domains can only be registered on a yearly basis, they cannot be renewed explicitly. To renew an .IS domain you have to set the domain renewal mode or default renewal mode to "AUTORENEW" or "RENEWONCE".
