How ICANN’S new transfer policy will affect domain transfers
Posted by Technical Manager on 23 January 2017 01:14 PM

What is the IRTP?

 

‘The Inter Registrar Transfer Policy’ is a new transfer policy by ICANN that affects all ICANN-accredited registrars and takes effect from the 1st of December 2016.

 

ICANN has revised its IRTP to curb domain hijacking and fraudulent transfer of gTLDs. An IRTP action is triggered when you or your customers make any material change to the registrant’s name address or organisation – while transferring ownership of a domain name or merely updating contact information.


Since these policy changes will impact you and your customers, you need to complete additional steps in order to confirm a transfer to another party.

 

Electing the privacy protect feature on your domain name will also trigger a change and affect you and your customers as per the revised IRTP policy.
