Modifying domain owner data for a .ro domain is a fairly complex process involving both Hostico as a domain registrar and the domain owner. The procedure presented is structured for better clarity in the order of execution of the steps:
1.The willingness to modify the owner data is communicated to Hostico and the proforma invoice must be paid.

Note: Changing the domain owner's data resets the period of validity of a domain to the number of years paid for change by canceling any remaining active period.

For example, the domain has a 3-year active period and the invoice is paid for one year only. The domain will be active after completion of the procedure for only 1 year and not 3 as it initially was.

The domain will have the new owner's data for the entire duration of its validity-after the period of 1 year it will not return to the original data. The resetting is only for the period of validity of the domain.

2. It is necessary to give us the future owner's data on which the change will take place. The data required to initiate the transfer are:

For individuals:

  • Name, Surname
  • Personal identification number
  • Email
  • Phone number
  • Complete address (Country, county, town, postal code, address)


For legal entities:

  •  Name of legal entity
  • Unique registration code of the legal entity
  • Registration certificate
  • Email
  • Phone number
  • Complete address (Country, county, town, postal code, address)

3. Last step is for you to provide us with the right transfer key. This key can only be obtained by the domain owner in the ROTLD domain administration panel. If you need help with this procedure, you can follow the .ro Domain Transfer, but when you select the key that you want to generate instead of "Transfer to another Registrar", select "Transfer Right to Use".
