Domain Restrictions

Registrant has to be in the Netherlands, but registry automatically uses itself as trustee, which is hidden from the registrant and registrar.

Please note that as of February 1, 2021, registrant lookups will be allowed only for .nl domain names in the registrar's own portfolio, or with the registrant's consent. Thus, SIDN will put registrants in full control of their own data. A registrant will then be able to share their details with a registrar whenever the need arises, such as when they want to transfer a domain name or get a quarantined name reinstated.
SIDN provides a tool that registrants can use to look up their own details and forward them to a registrar or someone else.
Registrants must first get to know these new arrangements. Therefore, SIDN has prepared a template text that can be used if a registrant contacts a registrar in a matter where the registrar needs the fullvregistration data of a domain.
