Domain:trade

Performing a trade of a domain

For most of the top-level domains, the organisational contact (domain owner) can be modified by performing a simple domain:update of the domain contacts. For some top-level domains however you have to request a trade to change the information of the organisational contact. Some registrars request a trade only if you modify the first/last name or the company, other registrars request a trade for any modification of the organisational contact.

The trade command can only be used to change the organisational contact of a domain. If you want to modify any other contacts and/or the nameservers, please use the domain:update request.

If you try to perform a trade on a domain which is under a top-level domain that does not require a trade to change the organisational contact , the server will return an error.

To find out whether you have to perform a trade or not to change the organisational contact, simply send a tld:info request to the API Server and parse the element tld:tradeRequired of the result.
