Deletion and Transfer Protection
Domain deletion and transfer protection services, total security for when its needed.
You no longer need worry about your domain name being deleted or transferred without your authorisation.
BB Online now offers deletion protection and/or transfer protection completely free of charge on .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info & .name domain names.
How does it work
We will not delete your domain name after expiry. Instead we will suspend the domain name and maintain it for 1 year. So, that extended holiday or business trip will no longer have to include those worries of your domain name being lost.
If a domain name has entered the deletion protection phase (i.e. it has expired) you will be contractually obliged to renew the domain name at our standard renewal rates before it can be re-activated. This must be done before you can transfer away.
If after 1 year the domain name still hasn't been renewed the name will then be deleted.
Typical inter-registrar transfers are carried out with the use of passwords and authorisation codes. This is carried out by either by the registrant or and admin contacts using our control panel.
However, by choosing our transfer protection process we will give you an extra level of security. This is a manual process which will involve phone calls and physical proof of identification to verify the transfer to another registrar. We will verify any transfer request in one of the four ways detailed below:
- The owners written consent on (letterhead in the case of a company) along with a scanned copy of the owners identification. (Driving Licence / Passport)
- The owners written consent along with a letter from a Notary / Solicitor stating that the request is genuine.
- The owners or admin contacts written consent on (letterhead in the case of a company) along with a scanned copy of the admin contacts identification. (Driving Licence / Passport)
- The owners or admin contacts written consent along with a letter from a Notary / Solicitor stating that the request is genuine.
Note: Your domain will be locked and secured against fraudulent transfer regardless of wether you select this option. Transfer protection is an additional level of security only suitable for some registrants.
