Objects Update

The domain name object

A domain name object can not be modified if its status is "HOLD" or "quarantine".


Update Contacts

The administrative contact and / or technical and / or billing related to a domain name can be changed by providing the new Contact object ID.

Note that if certain information of a contact linked to a domain name should be changed, as the address or email address, the object should be updated instead of replacing it with a new contact object.

To change the contacts of a domain name, the Reseller must request this operation using the function domainChangeContact
Caution: semantic rules may apply depending on the extension. See Category:Tld


Update the DNS name servers

Domain name's DNS name servers can be updated by providing new ones.

If the Glue is mandatory for a domain name, the Reseller must provide the related IP address.

To change the DNS servers for a domain name, the Reseller must request this by using the function domainChangeDNS
Caution: semantic rules may apply depending on the extension. 

Following the extension:

0-5 DNS servers can be used for a domain name. If no server is specified, the domain name will not be delegated and will not be online
A DNS test (named 'zonecheck') may be made before the modification by the registry. If the domain is not properly installed on new servers as technical prerequisites, the application will be rejected.


Enable/Disable the registrar-lock

This function allows to block any Transfer to another Registrar and thus protect the domain name from thefts.

To enable/disable a domain name's protection, the Reseller must use the function domainSetPreference.

Masked Whois

Caution: This feature is not available for all extensions. See Category:Tld 


Update owner's informations

It is not possible to update following data: lastname, firstname, bodyForm et bodyName

If these data are to be modified, this is considered to be a trade, therefore the owner ID must be replaced with following function domainTransferOwner.

To update owner's informations the Reseller must use the function domainUpdateOwner (API version 1) or contactOwnerUpdate (API version 2)
 Caution: semantic rules may apply depending on the extension. See Category:Tld

The contact object

Un objet Contact peut être modifié s'il n'est pas du type Owner

To update a contact, the Reseller must use the function contactUpdate

When an update is required, the change is asynchronously because Netim must update all nic-Handles associated therewith from Registries. Therefore, if a contact is defined as contact for many domain names, they will all be updated in whois
