Registration procedure

There are no restrictions for the .DE TLD. Anyone can register one and they are served on a first-come basis.

However, the TLD requires an Administrative Contact that has an address in Germany. NordName's local contact service is included in the prices, so we will provide a valid Administrative Contact for you.

Transfer procedure

The transfer requires an EPP / Authorization code that you can obtain from your current domain registrar. The transfer lock must also be disabled before transferring a .DE domain name.

Once the transfer request has been submitted, the registry will ask the current registrar to approve the transfer. The transfer must be approved within 5 days, otherwise the transfer will fail.

By transferring a domain to NordName, you will also renew it for one year and get to benefit of our numerous free domain services.
