New transfer policy: IRTP-C

On December 1, 2016, the Inter-Registrar Transfer Policy will be updated to IRTP-C. This change will affect domain transfers. The new policy is activated every time a change of registrant takes place and it triggers a series of confirmation and approval emails.

In this email we will cover the basics of IRTP-C and describe how this policy will impact your business. 

Impact on your business

The IRTP-C policy was designed to prevent domain name theft. The policy in short:

If the registrant data is changed in such a way that the ownership might transfer to another person and/or organization, both old and new registered domain name holders are required to accept the changes first.

However, both old and new registrants can appoint a “Designated Agent” to act on behalf of the registrant. This consent must be given explicitly. The Designated Agent is authorized to approve a change of registrant. After this change is completed, a notification will be sent to the old and new registrant.
