ICANN Domain Transfer Policy Update - 1 Dec 2016
Posted by Julian Harse on 30 November 2016 01:12 PM

On December 1, 2016, ICANN will enforce a new transfer policy that modifies the process of changing domain ownership from one registrant to another. The implementation of the policy is being imposed on all registrars including CWCS.

Up until now, this policy only covered domain transfers between registrars. The new policy now also covers the process of changing ownership of the domain from one entity to another (registrant to registrant). Now, every time a change of registrant takes place, a series of confirmation and approval emails are triggered. I.e. updates to a registrant’s first name, last name, organisation and email address and will require email approval before going into effect.
