KK application – The Heart Of Every Domain Move
A domain transfer, also known as a KK application (connectivity coordination application), can only be requested by the owner or administrative contact (Admin-C) of a domain.
If, for example, you plan to change the provider for a DE domain, you should instruct your new provider to take over the domain at an early stage. This provides the most effective protection against domain grabbing, the improper registration of freed domains.
By fax or letter should then inform his previous provider that you want to terminate his domain and share the transfer and ask for the sending of the auto code (authorization code)of the proxy site. The auto code is practically the password that authorizes the new provider to take over the domain. Many domain hoster provide ready-made forms for the transfer approval request. If a customer wants to change his domain, a provider is obliged to publish the Auto code.
As soon as the auto code arrives, you should send it to the Forward new provider, so that this can commission the domain acquisition at the responsible for the respective domain registry (NIC / Network Information Center).
An overview of which NIC administration is responsible for which domain extension can be found at the IANA (Internet Assigned Numerus Authority). Domain change Many domains can be booked – but moving to another provider can be a difficult undertaking.
After the domain extension further or other regulations have to be observed, which are determined by the respective NIC administrations. For example, to change a top-level domain such as .CH, .LI, .NL, .ME, or .EU, the domain owner receives a so-called FOA (= Form of Authorization) mail with a link to a page in he must enter the auto code and authorize the transfer start.
Before changing a domain you should discuss exactly with your new hosting provider, which special conditions are to be observed when changing a domain. This also concerns the question of whether the new provider offers the corresponding domain extension (TLD) at all. Usually you will find detailed information and FAQs also on the website of the hosting provider.
Of course, after a domain move, the corresponding domain has to be reconfigured and configured.4. What happens with a domain move with the e-mail accounts? Especially companies and the self-employed present themselves with their own domain name and company website on the Internet. Business e-mail accounts are assigned to the corresponding domain.
The domain name is thus automatically part of the business e-mail addresses. When moving a domain to another provider, the question arises, what happens to the e-mail boxes? A point that is also tax-relevant, as entrepreneurs are required to keep documents with document function and records of accounting up to 10 years.
The entrances and exits of e-mail accounts are usually stored on the respective hosting product , If the hosting product is terminated and deleted by the provider, all e-mails would also be lost if these are not backed up beforehand.
