Registrations - About WHOIS data of your domain names
to update your domain's whois information
Step 1: Open an account
Open an account the first time you use our registration services. You must use only
alphanumeric characters (plus -).
Your account information will be the default Contact and Registrant information for
each domain name you will be registering. You may create new Contact or Registrant information as needed.
Step 2: Login to your account
Login to the account you first created and select "Register Domains".
Step 3: Check availability
Enter the domain name(s) you wish to register and click "Check".
Select from the list of the available names you wish to register and click
Step 4: Complete registration form
Follow the instructions on the page to continue.
The Registrant, Administrative, Technical
and Billing Contact Information are automatically displayed. You may click
"Create" to create a new Registrant or Contact if they're different
than what is displayed on the form. After you enter the new information,
make sure to click "Reload" on your browser to have the new
Registrant or Contact information take effect and be displayed on the list
for you to choose.
Step 5: Make Payment
Complete and submit the credit card payment form in order to complete
the registration. If you do not submit the payment, your registration
will not go through. We accept VISA, MC, AMX and Discover, and checks
(US checks only).
What takes place after you register a
A registered domain name itself does not
automatically show up on a browser. You need to sign up a hosting service
with a hosting provider in order for the domain name to be viewed by a
You do not need a hosting service if you just want to use the domain name
for email only. 007Names provides free email services for the domain
names we sponsor. The free email setup is located at the "Free Services"
menu of our web site.
How long does it take for a registered
name to show up in the public whois list?
It may take up to twenty four (24) hours
for a newly registered domain name to become available in the publicly
available whois list.
What information does a domain's whois
A domain's whois information includes the
Registrant (It is considered the owner of
a domain name)
Admin. Contact ( Administrator contact of a domain)
Billing Contact (the party that is responsible for the domain's billing)
Technical Contact (it can be the same as the admin. or billing contact.
It can also be the sponsoring registrar or hosting provider's information)
.name registration rules
2nd Level .name name registrations: If a second
level .name domain (for example, smith.name) is registered first, any
registration of a third level name (whoever.smith.name) is prohibited.
The registrant (owner of the domain name) can only setup email forwarding
through their registrar or local ISP, not through the registry.
3rd Level .name name registrations: If a
third level .name domain (for example, john.smith.name) is registered
first, the second level name (for example, smith.name) is no longer available
for registration. Any available third level name will be open to registration
and email forwarding can only be setup through the registry.
.name email forwarding
If your 3rd level .name name was transferred to us (not originally registered
through us) and you wish to setup the email forwarding, you need to do
"Update Domain" from the "Manage Domains" menu first
before you set the email forwarding. By updating the 3rd level domain
name, you have sent your Registrant and Contact information to the registry
and that information needs to match the 3rd level domain name's information,
before you can create the email forwarding.
IDN Domain Names
There are times when you check an IDN name and it returns "Available" but
when you submit the registration it fails. The error code in this situation
is 510. It means the name has variants and therefore is not available
for registration. The registry also blocks some characters of certain countries
upon the request of the host country government.
The reasons a registration failed
1. The name servers you entered do not exist.
2. The Registrant and Contact information must be in alphanumeric characters only.
If any field of this information contains native language characters, you must
change them using the "Manage Contacts" menu.
3. NEXUS information is required for .us registrations.
You need to login to your account and select
" Update Registrant" from the "Manage Contacts" menu to enter the NEXUS
information before you proceed to register a .us name.
4. You must do business in or be a resident of an EU member state to register an .eu domain name.
About .Pro Names Registrations
AV Object can be reused by the registrant within 30 days (using the same
authorization pin ) to register other third level names at $75 for the
month of June only. Other normal time it is $125.
You can only register a third level .pro
name if you have only one professional credentail. If you have two credentials
on two different professions, you may register a second level .pro name.
How to transfer a domain name in your
account to another account within 007names.com?
If you sell a domain or give a
domain to another party to control, you need to change the ownership (domain
account) of the domain name.
You need to obtain the new owner's account
name with 007names.com first, and then login to your account to do "Change
Domain Account" from the "Manage Domains" menu.
How to transfer a domain name between
A newly registered domain name can not be transferred within the first 60 days.
To successfully transfer a domain name between registrars you need to have the Auth Info
of the domain name. (You need to contact your current registrar to obtain this Auth Info.)
In addition, the domain name's status cannot be "Status: clientTransferProhibited", or
"Status: clientUpdateProhibited". Contact your current registrar to remove/unlock either of these restrictions.
Once these steps have been taken care of, you can then initiate a transfer request from the gaining
registrar's web site. The losing registrar CANNOT process the transfer request.
For 007Names.com customers, both functions are located at the "Manage Domains" menu.
The Auth Info is located in the "detail" link of the "View Domains" sub-menu. The Status is located in the "Lock/Unlock" sub-menu. If the Auth Info is blank, please send an email to Support and we will email you the code.
A losing registrar has up to five (5) business days from the day of submission to approve or deny
the transfer request. If the losing registrar does not respond within this five (5) day period,
your request will automatically be approved.
Restoration of a deleted domain
When a domain name is deleted either by a
registrar or by the domain name owner the domain registry will change
the status of the domain name to "REDEMPTIONPERIOD". It will
stay in the status for thirty (30) days for the original owner to claim
it back. After the thirty day period the domain name will be moved to
"PENDING DELETE" status and will stay in the status for five
(5) days before it is released to the general public.
The sponsoring registrar of a deleted domain
name needs to submit a "RESTORATION" request and then a "RESTORATION
REPORT" to the domain's registry only if such a request is initiated
by the registered domain name owner.
007Names.com charges $120 for the restoration
service. If you have a deleted name
and wish to restore it, you need to login to your account to make a deposit
for the $120 restoration fee plus renewal fees of the domain name. Upon
receiving the deposit we will submit a restoration application on your
behalf and the domain name will be back to normal once we have completed
About WHOIS data of your domain names
If you only want to modify existing Registrant
or Contacts information, you do "Update Registrant" or "Update Contacts"
from "Manage Contacts" menu. Our "Update Registrant" or "Update Contacts'"
will automatically send the new Registrant or Contact to the registry
if it is a thick registry (responsible for their whois), and the domain
names that use the same Registrant/Contact will automatically pick up
the new info.
If you create a new Registrant or Contact
and wish to have all or certain domain names to use the new one you have
created, you need to use "Change Domain Registrant" or "Change Domain
Contacts" from "Manage Domains" menu to update the domain whois info to
the registry. "Update Domains" will do the same except it only takes care
of one domain name at a time.
How to update your domain's whois information
Your domain's public whois information comes from the "Registrant" and "Contacts"
listed on the "Manage Contacts" menu. You may modify the public whois information using "Update Registrant"
and "Update Contacts" from the "Manage Contacts" menu.
If you are creating a new set of "Registrant' and "Contacts" for an existing domain name in your account,
you need to do "Update Domains" from the "Manage Domains" menu
once you have created the new "Registrant" and "Contacts".
