Add Properties

In order to add properties for .*.ES/.ES domains to a contact, follow the procedure below.

!!Take note!!: Esnic, the Spanish registry, requires additional information about the registrant of .es domain names and the administrative, billing and technical contacts. This means that the additional properties have to be added to the Admin, Billing, Tech and Registrant contacts.

  • Lookup the contact you wish to add the properties to and open it. Next, you're going to add additional properties to the contact. In this case, you will choose the .*.ES, .ES (Esnic) option.Once you've selected the .*.ES/.ES properties, you'll be directed to the page where you can submit the requested information.

  • Fill out the data as requested by the form and click save properties when you're done.
  1. Unique data set, organization number or NIE or NIF: Provide a unique data set belonging to the registrant.
  2. Co-operation number: Submit the entity type.

Troubleshooting

As we all know, using Admin, Billing and Tech contacts specified as an organization for .ES domains are not allowed by the Esnic registry. This could pose a problem if you want to update domains registered with Admin Billing and Tech contacts that were set up prior to the enforcement of this rule by the Esnic registry.

You can run into the following error messages if you're updating a .ES domain through the Domain Manager which is using incorrect Admin, Billing or Tech contacts:

The additional contact property 'Identification number' is mandatory for all contacts

This means that one of the used contacts for your *.ES, .ES domain (the registrant, admin, billing or tech contact) is missing additional properties for Esnic. Make sure all contacts appointed to the domain have additional properties for the Esnic Registry. For a detailed description of how to add additional properties for Esnic, check the add properties section.

Admin contact should not be an organization

This means the admin contact that is currently appointed to the domain you're trying to update is specified as an organization. Create a new contact that is  not specified as an organization and use it as admin contact it in the update.

Tech contact should not be an organization

This means the tech contact that is currently appointed to the domain you're trying to update is specified as an organization. Create a new contact that is  not specified as an organization and use it as tech contact in the update.

Billing contact should not be an organization

This means the billing contact that is currently appointed to the domain you're trying to update is specified as an organization. Create a new contact that is  not specified as an organization and use it as billing contact in the update.

Updating the registrant is not supported

Last but not least, updating the registrant contact for a .ES domain is not allowed by the registry. If you do try to update a contact which is listed as registrant contact for a .ES domain, you will run into the error below:

Updating the registrant is not supported for .ES domains. Review the trade section in this knowledgebase article to change the registrant of a .ES domain and update resgitrant contact.


Transfer out

To transfer out a .*.ES/.ES domain, you do not need an auhtcode.

Simply have your new registrar request the transfer and have the admin contact confirm the transfer through the confirmation email that is sent by the Esnic registry. After confirmation, the transfer will complete real-time depending on your new registrar.
