Transfer via API

By using the API, a domain registration is requested with the function domainTransferOwner.

The function requires the following parameters:

Format Variable Description Notes
string (32) idSession identifier of the session
string (255) domain domain name to be traded
string (12) idOwner New owner ID avec "isOwner=1

Semantic Rules

Registration rules are different according to the Tlds. See procedure, restrictions and rules Category:Tld

An authorization code can be necessary
Any restrictions on the owner

Whatever the process used to register a domain name, the Reseller should know the semantic rules of the extension.

When you call the domainTransferOwner function, the API checks only if the mandatory fields are provided. We check the semantic rules only when the operation is processed, given that we perform the needed verification before requesting the registration to the registry.

Basic steps to order a change of owner via API

1) For the extension to be registered, check the semantic rules of the domainTransferOwner function and the possible values to determine:

 Any restrictions on the owner
 Any required additional fields  
 If the authorization code is necessary

2) Create a contact for the owner (Field "isOwner" = 1) and provide the needed additionnal fields corresponding to the semantics rules.

3) Request the change of owner with the function domainTransferOwner

The API will perform a first check to see if all provided datas are OK

You receive a tracking number for the request and you can now follow its status

4) Netim makes the domain registration according to the registry's procedure. Therefore different actions may be necessary as the provision of identification documents or forms
