Internal redelegation

Internal redelegation

Domain names can be redelegated internally in an organization, if old and new name servers belong to the same organization. Send an e-mail to with the following information:

  • The name of the old primary name server
  • IP address of the new primary name server
  • User ID and password for all name servers, both in the old and the new setup.

The e-mail must be sent as text/plain in one of the following formats:

  • ISO-8859-1
  • Windows-1252

E-mails requesting internal redelegations, will not be processed, unless they meet all conditions. In case of errors, the redelegation programme will not return an answer.

Requirements for the e-mail requesting internal redelegation

  • The e-mail must contain a list of domain names, with one domain name per line
  • Empty lines will be ignored
  • User IDs must be written in capital letters
  • A domain name can not be coded (e.g.
  • The e-mail may not contain any other text
  • There is a maximum of 999 domain names pr. e-mail
  • The list of domain names can not be attached to the e-mail

The domain names must be set up on the new name servers, before the programme can redelegate the domain name from the list of domain names.
