New transfers policy commences Monday 16 June 2003

Posted by Jo Lim on 5 June 2003

The new Transfers Policy (2003-03) will come into force at 10am AEST on Monday 16 June 2003.

To ensure a smooth transition to the new policy, AusRegistry will cease to process transfer requests at 7pm AEST on Friday 13 June 2003.

The main feature of the new transfers policy is that registrants may transfer their domain name to another registrar at any time without having to enter into a new 2 year licence.

PLEASE NOTE: Under the new policy, the gaining registrar is still required to obtain confirmation from the registrant contact before sending the transfer request to the registry.

For more information about the new policy, refer to the review of policy during January/February 2003.
