What do I have to do as the domain holder if my domain has been placed in TRANSIT?

If your domain is placed in TRANSIT, DENIC informs you accordingly by letter to the domain holder's address recorded in our database. You as the domain holder must then decide within a period of four weeks what is going to happen with the affected domain. You have two options:

  1. Provider transfer – You want to keep the domain, i.e. transfer it to a new provider with the help of the provider transfer password (AuthInfo).
  2. Domain deletion – You definitely want to give up your position as holder of the domain.

You can submit a deletion request or generate your individual provider transfer password (AuthInfo) directly via our TRANSIT Service Center. Simply log in with your personal TRANSIT password we sent to you with our TRANSIT letter. You will be guided through the procedure step by step.
