You remain the domain holder of a domain that is in TRANSIT because the domain contract with DENIC you have concluded simultaneously with the provider contract remains valid. A domain going through the TRANSIT procedure stays registered in your name and is administered by our service DENICdirect. There is no need to worry that your domain will be deleted simply because you don't have a valid provider contract.
The additional services that you used to get from your former provider (such as webspace for a homepage) will probably no longer be available with the termination of the contract or will only remain available for a short period of time. To find out the details, please contact your former provider.
However, you cannot afford to do nothing. Within the period set in the TRANSIT letter, you must either have moved to a new provider or delete the domain.
The demand for payment included in the letter will only be cancelled within the scope of our accommodation offer, if you carry out one of the aforementioned actions.
Alternatively, you may pay the amount requested in the payment demand and continue to have your domain administered by our service DENICdirect. For making use of this service, you are charged the related fees listed in the DENIC Price List.
Please note: If you do not react within the set period, DENIC will terminate the domain contract for your domain without notice and delete the domain. Therefore, it is essential that you as the domain holder react to the TRANSIT letter in order to avoid an unintended termination of the domain contract.
For the TRANSIT procedure to work properly, the holder data stored in the DENIC database must always be up-to-date because the TRANSIT letter is sent to the address indicated in the database. If the letter cannot be delivered, the procedure is suspended. A termination without notice of the domain contract will be sent to the domain holder to the e-mail address stored in the DENIC database and the domain will be deleted in the end.
