When can a transfer code not be requested?

There are several situations in which you cannot request a transfer code for a domain name:

Your domain name is on hold

When a domain name is on hold, legal proceedings are pending about that domain name.

Your domain name is blocked

If your domain name is blocked, you cannot request a transfer code online. This also means that someone else cannot launch a transfer of this domain name via our site.

A .be domain name is blocked:

If your domain name was transferred without your knowledge or consent, you can report it to DNS Belgium. A  legal evaluation will be conducted, after which we may decide to undo the transfer.  

Domain Guard vs Domain Shield

Domain Guard and Domain Shield are both services we offer to protect your domain name. They both prevent a hacker from requesting e.g. the following transactions:

  • update the data of your domain name (e.g.nameservers, DNSSEC -data, etc.)
  • change your domain name holder data
  • move of transfer your domain name
  • delete your domain name
