Transferring your Domain from your Provider to DENICdirect

Here you will find all the necessary information, if you wish to have your .de domain administered in the future by our DENICdirect service.

Please be aware that domain administration by DENICdirect will not include any additional Internet services. So you will neither receive any web space, nor any e-mail addresses nor any name service. Such Internet services that go beyond the mere administration of domains are made available by specialised Internet service providers. For this reason, we recommend that you have your domain administered by one of our members.

To transfer your domain from the provider currently responsible to DENICdirect, DENIC offers you the password-protected AuthInfo procedure. You will find information and support with regard to the data that is required for transferring your domain on a separate information page. Please observe the DENIC-Domain Guidelines when you fill in your request.

How to Carry Out a Provider Transfer Using an AuthInfo:

  1. Please contact your current provider and request that they establish a provider transfer password (AuthInfo) for your domain. The provider will store the password with DENIC in encrypted form. Please note that the validity of the password is limited to a maximum of 30 days.
  2. Fully complete our provider transfer form, have it signed by the domain holder or the legal representative and return it to us. Enter the AuthInfo password in the space provided on the last page of the form. The domain can only be transferred to DENICdirect, if the AuthInfo entered on the form is identical to the password stored in our database.
  3. Once your request has been successfully processed, we will send you an invoice for the domain transfer, which will include domain administration by DENICdirect and one year of domain connectivity at the rates of the currently valid DENIC Price List.
