API commands

Please find in the following a set of the most commonly used standard API commands in order to register, modify, renew, and transfer a domain name.

Domain Registration

(API Command reference » AddDomain)
command         = AddDomain
domain          = yourdomain.agrar.hu
period          = (INT)
ownercontact0   = (CONTACT)
admincontact0   = (CONTACT)
techcontact0    = (CONTACT)
billingcontact0 = (CONTACT)
nameserver0	= (NAMESERVER)
nameserver1 	= (NAMESERVER)
X-HU-IDCARD-OR-PASSPORT-NUMBER = (TEXT)(required for organisations and natural persons)
X-HU-VAT-NUMBER                = (TEXT)(required for organisations)

The .HU registry changed the registration process: all registrations of .HU domain names, including failed ones, will be fully billed.

To avoid disadvantages for you from this policy, we offer a new feature in cooperation with our partners: In case of incorrect or incomplete data all registrations will be successfully and compulsively completed using our partner’s proxy data. Registration requests cannot fail or time out anymore like this. Refunds are not possible.

Corrections of the registrant data for domains using the above-mentioned proxy-data fallback are free of charge. Please contact Support to send the required documents.

It is mandatory to use the registrants full name. Applications with abbreviated names (like M. Mustermann) as well as privacy protection etc. will be rejected by the registry!

If the registrant is an organization, please make sure to include the legal form in the organization field.

In regards to the registration process of the registry, there is a 8+2 days waiting period. In this period the domain remains in the status "PROCESSING".

You will get the X-HU-EAF-URL (URL to the Electronic Application Form, which is valid for a period of 15 days) within the response of an AddDomain command:

    code = 200
    description = Command completed successfully
    property[created date][0] = 2015-04-01 13:55:34.0
    property[job id][0] = 10150737643
    property[registration expiration date][0] = 2017-04-01 13:55:34.0
    property[renewal date][0] = 2017-03-23 13:55:34.0
    property[roid][0] = XX150875710237_DOMAIN-KEYSYS
    property[status][0] = PROCESSING
    property[x-hu-eaf-url][0] = https://domainreg.hu/eaf/?=en&key=bc14a122acbeb7d84af15009af7c4bc2
  • The form must be submitted within 14 days, otherwise the domain registration fails. If the data is not correct and the processing is discontinued by the registry, another attempt can be made only after 14-15 days after the expiration of the registration application. A previous termination is NOT possible.

In addition, our system returns a REG NOTIFY event with the URL after the submission of the registration application:

    Event subclass: REGISTRATION_NOTIFY
    Event info: Um die Registrierung durchzuführen, bestätigen Sie bitte die Angaben auf der folgenden Webseite:
