Registry Update Bulletin Skip to main.


On March 17, 2010, the official registry of the ccTLD of the Netherlands, SDIN, upgraded their registry system to EPP. With this migration to EPP many beneficial features and changes were made available for all registrants.

Forms - No Longer Required
When registering, updating or deleting a domain, it is no longer required to confirm via fax. All paperwork has been eliminated.

Domain Transfers via Tokens (Authorization Codes)
Each domain now has a unique "Token" (authorization code). With the authorization code for a domain, transfers can be initiated via the receiving (new) registrar. The losing (old) registrar will have the ability to approve the outgoing transfer for immediate transfer. If the losing registrar does not do anything, then transfers are auto-processed after 5 days.
