Changing Domain Name Holder

You can transfer ownership of your domain to someone else who meets our registration criteria at any time.

How this is done depends on why you’re changing the domain holder details.

Buying, taking over, restructuring, or merging a business

To update the domain holder details in these instances, you’ll need to provide the following:

1. Contact your Registrar, and provide them with a signed document on headed paper from the current Administrative Contact. This letter must include a signed declaration that the registrant change is taking place as part of a transaction to buy/ take over/ restructure/ merge a business, and must also state that you authorise the cancellation of the specified domain name in order to reassign it to the future owner.

2. Information from the future domain owner showing their connection to Ireland, and proof of personal/commercial identity, as per the IEDR’s registration policies. Please refer to our Registration Requirements page for more information.

3. The future owner must also provide their contact details to be recorded as the new Administrative Contact.

The above steps should be completed at the same time to avoid the possibility of the domain being cancelled. The IEDR must ensure that the future domain owner has supplied all necessary requirements to re-assign the domain.

Changing the Domain Holder for any other reason

You should follow the process outlined here, which was introduced to support all other domain holder changes, including (but not limited to) the sale of the domain.
