Update contacts for multiple domains and the designated agent option

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

If the TLD's you've submitted supports it, you can also select whether to act as designated agent or not. To review 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 privacy protect settings for multiple domains

Select the desired Privacy Protect setting for the domains you wish to update. Selecting 'No changes' will leave the Privacy Protect setting as is. To determine if a TLD supports privacy protect, review the TLD metadata overview

Generate new authcodes for multiple domains

Select this option to update the authcodes for multiple domains. 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 multiple domains

To add or remove a status for multiple domains, simply select the status you wish to add/remove as detailed in the image below:

Selecting no status will skip any status update.

Set autorenew setting to true or false for multiple domains

For the selection of domains you've entered, you can update the autorenew setting to true or false. Selecting 'On' will force the true setting, selecting 'Off' will force the false setting and selecting 'No changes' will leave the autorenew setting untouched in the update.

Change the autorenew cycle for multiple domains

For the selection of domains you've entered, 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 multiple domains

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

Update DNSSEC settings for multiple domains

For the selection of domains you've entered, 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. Refer to the update a single domain section for more information on this.
