As a registrar, you sign an agreement with us. The agreement regulates your responsibilities and your obligations to the subscribers, as well as your collaboration with us. On this page, you can access the agreement itself and read more about how to transfer and terminate the agreement.

Transition to a new registrar agreement

In June 2021 we are introducing a new registrar agreement. On 15 June 2021 we sent out a new registrar agreement to all registrars to sign. In a transitional period until 18 August there will be two active registrar agreements.

More information about the transition

The agreement text

The texts in the agreements are published for your information only. We will send you the proper agreement document after we receive your application. The agreement must be signed by both parties.

Transfer the agreement to another business enterprise

As a norm, a registrar agreement cannot be transferred to another business enterprise. However, if your organization changes as a result of a merger or a change in business organization, it may be possible to transfer the agreement. Submit an application, including a certificate of registration, to info@norid.no where you document that your circumstances concern a merger or change in business organization.

In cases where your services as a registrar will continue in a completely new enterprise, you must sign a new agreement in the ordinary way. Domain names can be transferred when the new agreement is in place.

Terminate the agreement

The agreement may be terminated by either the registrar or by Norid. The termination must be made in writing.

If you want to terminate the agreement, send a signed letter of termination either by email or regular mail. Specify a bank account number for settlement of your account.

The agreement can be terminated with one month’s notice. During the period of notice, we expect you to inform your customers of the situation and help them find a new registrar.

If a registrar fails to comply with the terms of the agreement, we would normally reach out and help the registrar remedy the situation. In case of serious breach of contract, we may terminate the agreement.
