Domain Deletion

DeleteDomain is not available for .ar TLDs.

As .ar domains cannot be deleted explicitly. To delete a .ar domain you have to set the domain renewal mode or default renewal mode to AUTODELETE or AUTOEXPIRE.

Domain Transfer

TransferDomain is not available for .ar TLDs.

  • The .ar registry has no registrar model, thus transfers are not possible. If you would like to manage your .ar domains through us and transfer them to RRPproxy, the domain owner data needs to be modified and our trustee will be inserted.
    • This can be done at https://nic.ar/ and requires a login using the respective CUIL or CUIT number and the corresponding password. A full howto is available at the registry website. Only the first 6 steps are necessary and our trustees ID 50244773548 needs to be entered. Afterwards our trustee will accept the transfer and we will take over your domain into management.
  • If you would like to transfer your .ar domain(s) to us, please contact our fulfillment team directly.

Domain Restore

RestoreDomain is not available for .ar TLDs.

Restores for .ar are not possible.

Domain Restrictions

  • .AR second level domain name registrations will be made available by the Argentinian registry as of September 15, 2020.
  • Our trustee service is required to manage .ar domains and will be automatically applied to all registrations.

  • It is not allowed by Nic.AR to use the same IP address for two name servers

Fulfillment Info

FTLD .ar is a Fulfillment TLD. Fullfilment TLDs (FTLDs) are registered through a manual registration process. The manual registration process might involve documents, depending on respective registry regulations, and are therefore not automated for real-time registrations and real-time updates. Updates might cause additional costs!
