.DE is the country code top-level domain of Germany.
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.
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.
|Privacy rating (GDPR)||
The registry is EU based and your data protection rights are secured. By registering under this TLD you hold the right to become forgotten (data erasure). Your contact details will also not be exported to a 'third country'. In summary, you are safe and hold your fundamental privacy rights. You're good to go.
