Sometimes you cannot initiate a Change Of Registrant via your VIPControl account. This will be because the ABN/ACN associated with the domain name is invalid or cancelled.
For Businesses or Organisations
To initiate a CoR process, we need some evidence that the domain name has changed entity.
Here are some examples of documentation we accept as proof of a change of ownership.
- A copy of a sales agreement showing that the business was sold or changed hands; or
- A signed letter on company letterhead stating that the domain name has changed hands; or
- Any valid document showing the domain name or business has changed hands.
For Sole Traders and Partnerships
Sometimes an ABN/ACN is associated with a domain name is for a Sole Transfer or Partnership. In which case, we need to see that the Sole Trader or at least one member of the Partnership is the one requesting the COR be completed. We normally accept any form of government-issued ID (e.g. drivers license, passport) as proof that the Sole Trader or member of a Partnership is actually requesting the CoR take place.
