What are the blocking periods for domains?

What are blocking periods?

For many domain extensions there are blocking periods during which e.g. no transfer/provider change or a new registration is possible. These blocking periods are determined by the respective registry and serve to limit the misuse of the domains. In principle, it would be possible to transfer the domains from one provider to another on a daily basis without a blocking period and, if necessary, to change the domain holder again and again. In case of legal problems concerning a domain, it could be difficult to will catch the person responsible.

Examples of retention periods

Transfer block of approx. 60 days after new registration, completed transfer and deletion

- e.g. at .com, .net, .biz, .bike, .guru, .center

Transfer lock of approx. 60 days after new registration

- .me Blocking period after deletion

Blocking period after deletion

- .de, .tv, .cc (30 days)

- .ch (40 days)

- .eu (40 days)

- .at (approx. 8 weeks)
