Domain change of registrant (CoR) process

Manual change of registrant (CoR) process

To initiate a COR process, we need some evidence that the domain name has changed entity.

Here are some examples of documentation we accept as proof of a change of ownership.

  • A copy of a sales agreement showing that the business was sold or changed hands; or
  • A signed letter on company letterhead stating that the domain name has changed hands; or
  • Any valid document showing the domain name or business has changed hands.

If no documentation is accessible, please get in touch with our team to review available options to resolve this, and enable a COR process to take place

For Sole Traders and Partnerships

Registrants can reactivate their ABN online to ensure they remain eligible to hold and renew this domain name.

Alternatively, registrants will be able to perform a change of registrant on the domain name to have the license re-registered to their current ABN.

If any issues are encountered, we normally accept any form of government-issued ID (e.g. drivers license, passport) as proof that the Sole Trader or member of a Partnership is actually requesting the COR take place.

Transfer of Domain Chain Form

In the event that there is no supporting documentation to complete the CoR process, auDA have provided a document that you can fill out to proceed with the Change Of Registrant. This document is referred to as a ‘Transfer of Domain Chain Form’ and you can download that here. This form is to be completed where a domain name has been transferred to another registrant, and the current registrant i.e. the listed licensee of the domain name, no longer exists.

This form needs to be filled out and supplied to our support team with any supporting documentation AND a Statutory declaration that includes a signature from a Justice of Peace.

How to organise a manual COR

If you need a COR processed manually, please submit a ticket to our support team. Please ensure that you provide the supporting documentation mentioned above.
