Update contacts for a single domain and the designated agent option

You can update domain contacts with an update. Simply submit the contact handle(s) you wish to update the domain to and you should be all set. Leaving the contact fields empty will skip any contact updates.

If the TLD you need to update supports it, you can also select whether to act as a designated agent or not. To check if a specific TLD supports the designated agent option, Review the TLD metadata overview. For more information on the designated agent option itself, review the Designated Agent knowledge base article.

Take note: Some registries require additional properties or contact validation for an update to be able to succeed. For more information regarding contact validation click here. For more information regarding adding additional properties, click here.

Change the privacy protect setting for a single domain

Select whether to use Privacy Protect or not by checking/unchecking the checkbox. To determine if a TLD supports privacy protect, review the TLD metadata overview

Generate a new authcode for a single domain

Select this option to update the authcode for a single domain. It's advised to leave authcode generation up to our system. This is not only the safest method, but it will also make sure no invalid authcodes are generated.

However, if you need to set up a custom authcode, there is an option for it. If you select 'No changes' the authcode will not be updated in the bulk update.

Take note: using one single auth-ID for multiple domains is a potential risk for domain theft

Add or remove a status for a single domain

To add or remove a status for a single domain, simply check/uncheck the checkbox in front of the status you need to set.

Set autorenew setting to true or false for a single domain

For the domain you've selected to update, you can update the autorenew setting to true or false. To activate or deactivate autorenew, simply check/uncheck the checkbox in front of the autorenew setting.

Change the autorenew cycle for a single domain

For the domain you've selected to update, you can change the autorenew cycle to the desired one by selecting it in the drop-down menu. For a detailed overview of which periods are supported per TLD, review the TLD metadata overview.

Update nameservers for a single domain

For the domain you've selected to update, you can update the nameservers. Select one of the options available. You can connect a DNS-template and use our nameservers, select no nameservers to remove the current nameservers, specify your own nameservers added to the hosts section in the Domain Manager, or specify already active nameservers.

Update DNSSEC settings for a single domain

For the domain you've selected to update, you can update the DNSSEC settings. If you want to update the key-data itself, it's advised to update a single domain at a time.


When updating DNSSEC data, it's imperative to use correct data. The update is designed in such a way it checks DNSSEC data prior to initiating the update. If DNSSEC-data is incorrectly formatted you'll receive an error message like the one below:
