With our TRANSIT procedure we protect the domain holder from unintended loss of a domain. The TRANSIT procedure applies, if a domain is no longer administered by a provider. Even if there is no provider for a domain, the domain will not be deleted out of hand and therefore cannot be registered by anyone else while the TRANSIT procedure is ongoing. For the TRANSIT procedure to be performed, the domain is transferred to direct administration by DENIC.
The domain holder has the following options:
Provider transfer: By means of a provider transfer password (AuthInfo) the domain holder brings about the transfer of their domain to a provider of their choice.
Deletion: With the deletion of the domain the domain holder loses their position as holder and the domain becomes available for registration by a third party.
Domain administration by DENIC: The domain holder can choose his domain to be administered by the service DENICdirect at charge.
