Domain names, which are directly registrated under ".ec" can only be registrated for a period of 2, 3, 5 or 10 years.

Any second level domain (for example: ".com.ec" or ".net.ec") can only be registrated for a period of 1, 2, 3, 5 or 10 years.



In no case a domain name will be registered when such name:

- Is formed by words or phrases that may turn offensive, harsh or that may affect moral or public order or that may go against Ecuadorian Law.

- Deals with official aspects or subjects without a proper authorization.

- Match with protocol names, applications and terminology of the Internet or domain name terminology, e.g "http", "web", "www", "ftp", "telnet", "email"etc.

- Match identically and under the same level, with existing domain names within the database of the registry

- Match names restricted for registry.



IPv6 is supported.
Transfer possible Yes
Authcode (Transfer) Authcode required
Transfer fee € 135.00
Transfer time realtime

If you want to move your ".ec" domain to Networking4all, you should contact your current registrar and request to send the Domain Authorization Code (also referred to as a authcode, Authinfo code or transfer code). This code is assigned by the registrar. Authorization Codes are the password for the domain and serve as an additional safety measure. The verification codes ensure that only the domain name owner can relocate the domain. A domain name transfer to another registrar will be transfered instant if the domain transfer is approved at the "old/current" registrar.



A transfer to another holder is also possible. Therefore it's necessary that the domain name exist atleast six months and that there are no unpaid fees. However, the transfer procedure isn't quick, as original documentation is required on pre-established formats set out by the registry. These shall be send with the proof of action of a Public Notary. Registry and maintenance fees do not include the transfer costs.
