1. To Modify Contact Details for a Domain Name

2. Modifying CED Contact Details for a .ASIA domain name

2.1. To Modify the CED Contact associated with a .ASIA domain name

Typically, Domain Name Contacts are of the following types:

Registrant Contact

Administrative Contact

Technical Contact

Billing Contact

In the system, Contacts are independent of a domain name. All contact information that you have used for registering any domain name, is maintained separately in a Contact database. This allows you to re-use the contact information for any other domain name registration without having to fill in all the values again. Think of this as linking Contacts from your Contact database to the domain names you register. Whenever you change any contact information in any Contact, it will automatically change that information in every domain name which uses that contact information and reflect the same immediately in the Whois lookup results of your domain name. To Modify Contact Details for a Domain Name Exceptions

The Registrant or the Administrative Contact of a .DE domain name needs to be from Germany. This implies that the country of either of these Contacts needs to be Germany.

The Name field of any .DE Contact can not be modified. If you wish to modify the Name, create another Contact and associate the same with your .DE domain name.

While modifying the Contact Details of a .DE domain name, the .DE Registry checks if the Name Servers used by the domain name contain a Zone for this domain name and the correct NS Records.

If the Name Servers fail to display the Zone file of your .DE domain name and/or display NS Records for the Name Servers, you will not be able to modify the Contact details of your .DE domain name. Moreover, you will be provided 30 days to correct this issue or else your domain name would get Deleted by DENIC.

Once you have setup your .DE domain name's Zone correctly, you may click the Recheck Nameserver Status button in the Order Information view to confirm the same with the .DE Registry. Additional Information
