API commands

Please find in the following a set of the most commonly used standard API commands in order to register, modify, renew, and transfer a domain name.

Domain Registration

(API Command reference » AddDomain)
Command
command         = AddDomain
domain          = yourdomain.li

admincontact0   = (CONTACT)

  • We would like to point out that although there is no local presence requirement for .li domains in the proper meaning of the word, the registry may in certain cases request the disclosure of a valid correspondence address in Switzerland for purposes of the direct delivery of correspondence. In these cases the registrant must provide a valid Swiss correspondence address within 30 days (date of receipt by SWITCH). If the registry does not receive details of a genuine and accurate contact address in Switzerland within the specified deadline, the respective domain name may be deleted. We added a reference to the .CH & .LI Appendix clarifying this requirement.
