New Domain Name Registration System

On July 26, 2016, Serbian National Internet Domain Registry (RNIDS) started implementing a new domain name registration system affecting all registrants of Serbian top-level domains, the Latin .rs and Cyrillic .срб (srb).

The new system is in line with the protocol used for registering and verifying generic domains (.com, .net and others).

New regulations compliant with the new system entered into force on the same day, July 26, 2016. Under the new rules, registrants are required to verify the email address that they use to register domains, which means that shortly after registering a new domain, a registrant will receive an email with instructions on how to confirm that the email address and other data provided are valid. The verification must happen within 20 days or the domain name will be deactivated.
Under the new rules, email addresses of the registrant and the administrative contact are the required identifying information, which the registrants have to maintain in an active state and keep updated throughout the domain name validity period. Registrants are required to notify their accredited registrars of any changes in contact information.

These newly introduced changes also affect domain name transfers and updates. To transfer domain names to another registrar, registrants will need to retrieve an authorization code and complete the transfer through their accredited registrars. The ownership change documents will be generated by the system and automatically sent to the current registrant’s email address.
