PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY, AS IT CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND REMEDIES.
This Domain Name Change of Registrant Agreement (this “Agreement”) is entered into by and between 10Corp (“10Corp”) and you. It becomes effective upon your electronic acceptance and sets forth the terms and conditions for using 10Corp’s Change of Registrant services (the “Services”) to transfer a registered domain name from a current or prior registrant (the “Prior Registrant”) to a new registrant (the “New Registrant”). This Agreement applies to both the Prior Registrant and the New Registrant.
Your electronic acceptance indicates that you have read, understood, acknowledged, and agreed to be bound by this Agreement, along with 10Corp’s Universal Terms of Service, Domain Name Registration Agreement, Domain Name Transfer Agreement, and Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy, all of which are incorporated herein by reference.
The terms “we,” “us,” or “our” refer to 10Corp. The terms “you,” “your,” “User,” or “customer” refer to any individual or entity accepting this Agreement. Nothing in this Agreement confers any third-party rights or benefits.
10Corp, at its sole discretion, may change or modify this Agreement and any incorporated policies or agreements at any time. Such changes or modifications become effective immediately upon posting to the 10Corp website (this “Site”). You acknowledge and agree that (i) 10Corp may notify you of such changes or modifications by posting them to this Site and (ii) your use of this Site or the Services found at this Site after such changes or modifications have been made (as indicated by the “Last Revised” date at the top of this page) shall constitute your acceptance of this Agreement as last revised.

2. THE CHANGE OF REGISTRANT AND TRANSFER PROCESS; 10Corp’s Role
The Prior Registrant and the New Registrant both agree they are entering into this Agreement voluntarily. 10Corp’s sole role in this Agreement is as the processor of change of registrant information and/or the transfer of the registration request for the domain name. 10Corp’s responsibility is limited to processing the electronic change of registrant information and/or transfer of the registration request. The Prior Registrant and the New Registrant assume full responsibility for the legal validity of any change of registrant information and/or transfer of the domain name.
Please note the following:
- By entering into a change of registrant transaction, you acknowledge and agree that the domain name may not be transferred to another domain name registrar within sixty (60) days after the completion of the change of registrant transaction (the “Transfer Prohibition Period”). If either the Prior Registrant or the New Registrant anticipates the need to transfer the domain name to another domain name registrar within sixty (60) days after completing the change of registrant transaction, they should transfer the domain name to the new registrar first and make any necessary changes to the domain name registrant second.
- If the domain name is subject to a subsequent change of registrant transaction within the Transfer Prohibition Period, the Transfer Prohibition Period will begin again upon completing the subsequent change of registrant transaction.
A. Change of Registrant Process
Once the Prior Registrant initiates the change of registrant request, 10Corp will send a confirmation email to both the Prior Registrant and the New Registrant. Both parties must acknowledge and explicitly consent to the change of registrant information for the changes to be approved. Both the Prior and New Registrant will receive emails regarding the change and will need to click through to a landing page where (1) the Prior Registrant will need to review the domains and change of registrant information; the Prior Registrant will also need to opt-out of the 60-day transfer lock if the intent is to transfer the domain to a different registrar, and (2) the New Registrant will need to review the domains and change of registrant information; the New Registrant will need to enter into a new registrant agreement with 10Corp (if applicable). Both the Prior Registrant and New Registrant must confirm the terms of the change of registrant transaction within five (5) days of receipt of the confirmation email. If either the Prior Registrant or the New Registrant fails to confirm the terms of the change of registrant transaction within this five (5) day period, you acknowledge and agree the change will not occur, and the change of registrant information request will expire, requiring the Prior Registrant to begin the process anew.
Upon completion of the change of registrant transaction, 10Corp will send an email to both Prior Registrant and the New Registrant, confirming the change of registrant contemplated by this Agreement. If the Prior Registrant has any objection to the change of registrant whatsoever, the Prior Registrant assumes all responsibility for responding to such email and notifying 10Corp of any objection within fifteen (15) days of receipt of the email. The Prior Registrant agrees to release, indemnify, and hold 10Corp harmless for any issues that arise as a result of an improper change of registrant, whether intentionally or unintentionally initiated, whether by the Prior Registrant or others acting on its behalf.
B. Transfer Process
Upon the Prior Registrant’s initiation of a transfer request, 10Corp will send a confirmation email to the New Registrant. The New Registrant must log into its account and confirm the terms of the change of registrant transaction within ten (10) days of receipt of the confirmation email. If the New Registrant fails to confirm the terms of the transfer transaction within this ten (10) day period, you acknowledge and agree the transfer will not occur, and both the transaction ID and the security code for the transfer shall expire, requiring the Prior Registrant to begin the
