i-DNS.net International acts as a registry and processes domain name
registration applications on a 'first come, first served' basis. The
registration of a domain name entitles the registrant only to the use of the
domain name and does not confer any ownership over the

any determination as to the proprietary rights to a or any name. i-DNS.net
International does not evaluate, nor is it in any position to evaluate,
whether any registration or use may infringe upon the rights of any third

Transfer of Domain Names
i-DNS.net's transfer policy covers two situations:
- the transfer of domain names from one registrant to another and
- the transfer of domain names from one registrar to another.
1) Transfer of domain name
To transfer your domain name from one Registrant to another, simply contact your registrar with:
- your documents verifying your registration
- the details of the new registrant's details.
Your registrar will then check and verify the documents.
The new registrant will need to agree to the domain name registration agreement and the dispute policy before the registrar collects any payment that may be due.
The transfer of domain names is only allowed after 60 days of registration or re-registration. All outstanding registration fees have to be paid beforehand and any paid registration fees are non-refundable.
Once this is done, the registrar will inform i-DNS.net, which will then perform the transfer and update its WHOIS database to show the new registrant information for the transferred domain name.
The registrar will be informed of the successful transfer via e-mail, following which it will inform both the previous and new registrants.

2) Transfer of domain name from one Registrar to another
To transfer your domain name to another registrar, simply contact the new registrar to inform them of your intent to transfer your domain name to them.
You will need to provide the new Registrar with the following information, which is necessary to effect the transfer:
- Domain Name Details
- Native Domain Name
- ACE Domain Name (UTF/RACE/punycode)
- Current Registrant Admin Contact
- Contact Name
- Address (including country)
- Email Address
- Telephone number (including the country code and area code)
- Fax number (including the country code and area code)
You will also have to agree to the Domain Name Registration Agreement and pay any registration fees that may be due.
The new registrar will then send a request for a transfer of domain name to i-DNS.net.
The new registrar needs to send only one email for each registrant request for change of registrant, regardless of the number of domain names requested by the registrant.
All domain name details should be provided within the same email.
Upon receiving this request, i-DNS.net will forward an email to the current registrar. The current registrar has 5 calendar days to approve or reject the transfer request.
Rejection of transfer must be accompanied with a valid reason, e.g. the registrant has not paid for the domain name, or the domain name is in dispute, etc.
i-DNS.net will transfer the domain name to the new registrar after receiving the confirmation of approval from the current registrar. If there is no response from the current registrar after 5 calendar days, i-DNS.net will take that as a confirmation of approval.
After the domain name has been transferred to the new registrar, i-DNS.net will inform the new registrar via email. The new registrar will then inform the registrant.
