Change Domain Registrar

To transfer domain from one registrar to another registrar's account:

PKNIC requires a written authority letter from the current domain registrant (domain owner, not their agent or technical contact) on their letterhead under their official seal. For Pakistani nationals, a copy of the CNIC of the company head or director is also required. Please specify the account information in the authority letter, from which domain need to be transferred and the account to whom you intend to transfer the domain [Sample Authorization Letter].

  • If, due to some reason, the registrant name (fully or partially) does not match with officially used emblem (i-e on company letter) then an affidavit in the proper format is also required with the official authorization letter. The affidavit must comply to the legal requirements such as stamp paper (worth Rs. 100), and attested by oath commissioner. [Download Format]

  • If, the domain registrant is an individual then an affidavit in the proper format is required. The affidavit must comply to the legal requirements such as stamp paper (worth Rs. 100), and attested by oath commissioner. [Download Format]

You can send us the authority letter by post at the address given below:

This is to satisfy the requirement of the authorization and documentation of domain transfers.

This sharing process is called 'propagation', because the new information about your Domain Name spreads or propagates across the Internet. The zone files are propagated frequently, every few hours. We cannot control the rate at which the millions of servers on the Internet are updated, but generally your domain should be available to Internet users within a very short period.
Once a domain has been registered, its name can not be modified.
From time to time it is necessary to reach a contact person for the domain. This could be due to technical problems or disputes. In these situations, it is vital that the contact data is up to date. As the domain name holder, you are responsible for keeping your contact information updated.
