From time to time we are asked if we will  register, maintain, transfer and renew domains on behalf of customers.

When you take up our offer to register maintain transfer or renew domain names on your behalf then we will use the services provided by one of two domain registrars:

  • Krystal Hosting Ltd (krystal.io),
  • Public Domain Registry Pty Ltd (PublicDomainRegistry.com).

The IPS Tag of Krystal Hosting Ltd is: KRYSTAL.

The IPS Tag of Public Domain Registry Pty Ltd is: PDR-IN.

When registering domains on behalf of customers it is our policy to do so using only the details provided by our customer.

The customer retains ownership of any one domain registered, maintained, transferred or renewed by us on their behalf.

If ever you want to change your registrant details (for example, contact details or domain name server settings) then please contact Customer Support.

When permitted by the domain registrar, it is our policy to apply a domain lock to any one domain to prevent its illegal transfer away by a third party.

When you tell us you want to transfer your domain to a different domain registrar then we will unlock the domain to facilitate its transfer.

Domain registrars are required by ICANN to contact domain registrants by email for various reasons.

If we register maintain transfer or renew domain names on your behalf then you will periodically receive emails from the domain registrar which we use.

 

Domain Registrar Emails

Remind registrants of domain renewal & expiry

Domain registrars are required by ICANN to send automatic renewal and expiry notices to domain registrants.

Reminder emails will be sent to the domain registrant:

  • 30 days before the expiry date,
  • 7 days before the expiry date, and
  • immediately after the domain name expires.

Example Domain Renewal Notice.

Check accuracy of registrant contact details

Domain registrars are required by ICANN to send out a Whois Data Reminder email to gTLD domain name registrants.

This is to ensure that the domain registry managed by ICANN is kept up to date with accurate registrant contact details.

Example email to check accuracy of registrant contact details.

Verify registrant contact details

Domain registrars are required by ICANN to verify the contact details of registrants within 15 days following:

  1. a domain name being registered with unverified contact details,
  2. a domain name being transferred in, or
  3. the contact information of a registrant being modified.

Example email to verify registrant contact details.

You may from time to time receive what look like official domain renewal notices but which are in fact phishing emails sent by third parties.

You should avoid clicking links contained within suspected phishing emails..

Just ask if you ever doubt the authenticity of an email communication about a domain we have registered, maintain, transferred or renewed on your behalf.

FAQs

The IPS Tag of Krystal Hosting Ltd is: KRYSTAL.

The IPS Tag of Public Domain Registry Pty Ltd is: PDR-IN.

Examples of country level domains (ccTLDs) include .UK, .CO.UK and .ORG.UK.

ccTLDs are administered by registries around the globe.

The UK registry is called: Nominet.

Examples of generic Top-level Domain names (gTLDs) include .COM, .ORG and .NET.

gTLDs are administered by one world-wide registry: ICANN.

ICANN has a series of very strict policies designed to ensure its registry is kept up to date, resulting in domain registrars being compelled to contact domain registrant:

  1. before and immediately after domain expiry date (see Item 1 below),
  2. annually to confirm registrant contact details at the registry are up to date (see Item 2 below), and
  3. at certain other times (see below).

Low cost domain registration promotions can be tempting but costly over time when you consider that a domain registration or renewal is valid only for a limited period (usually one year).

For this reason we recommend you take time to carefully plan before you begin building a domain portfolio.

Two reasons why you should consider owning additional versions of your brand domain are:

  • to prevent cybersquatting associated with your company name;
  • to reduce the risk of phishing scams (copies of your website hosted on similar domains) being used by scammers to trick and harvest personal details from website visitors (your customers?).

Cybersquatting is "registering, trafficking in, or using an Internet domain name with bad faith intent to profit from the goodwill of a trademark belonging to someone else".

Phishing is the "fraudulent attempt to obtain sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by disguising oneself as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication".
