Registration and renewal period

One year.


Open to the public, with some restrictions:

  • You must reside in Germany or have an administrative contact (physical person) who resides in Germany and has an address other than a P.O. box.

  • During registration, the DNS (A, MX, and CNAME) of the domain name must be correctly configured so that it can pass the registry's zone check. Three servers of two different C classes are required.

  • If you're using a DNS service other than Route 53, the name servers for the domain must pass a check to ensure that they're correctly configured. To determine whether the name servers for your domain will pass the check, see https://www.denic.de/en/service/tools/nast/.

Privacy protection

Domain locking to prevent unauthorized transfers

Not supported. We recommend that you prevent unauthorized transfers by restricting access to the RetrieveDomainAuthCode API action. (When you restrict access to this Route 53 API, you also restrict who can generate an authorization code using the Route 53 console, AWS SDKs, and other programmatic methods.) For more information, see Identity and access management in Amazon Route 53.
