The tax/organization ID being associated with the domain during transfer must either not be currently registered in our database or it should be a transferred authority to the registrar through the .BR registry web interface. In other words, the tax/organization ID associated with a domain should be transferred at the registry (by logging in to the interface provided by the .BR registry) before placing a transfer request in our system.

Contact Details related Rules (Anchor: contact)

  • COM.BR registrations require four contact types: Owner, Admin, Technical, and Billing. The contact information associated with these is strictly validated by the Registry.
  • It is important to specify accurate addresses, phone numbers and email address, failing which the domain registration request may be canceled.
  • In the DomainPe.com system, there are two types of contacts used for .BR names — BR Owner Contact (for the Registrant, or domain owner) and a BR contact (for Admin, Tech and Billing contacts)
  • A BR Owner contact is a unique entity, and is always associated with a legal identification number (CPF or CNPJ). If a CNPJ/CPF number is being used with another Registrar to register domains, it can not be used to create a new contact with DomainPe.com. For this, the BR Owner contact must first be transferred over to DomainPe.com's Registrar.
  • The Bulk Modify feature is not supported for .BR domain names.

Transferring a BR Owner contact to DomainPe.com's Registrar(Anchor: contact)

The transfer of a BR Owner contact can only be done at the .BR Registry. Here are the steps you must follow to complete this transfer:

  1. Log in to the .BR Registry panel at https://registro.br/cgi-bin/nicbr/login.

    If you do not have an account with the Registry, or don't remember your login details, you can request for them from this page.

  2. Once logged in, click on TITULARIDADE to go to the ownership details view.

  3. In the details view, click on EDITAR INFORMAÇÕES to edit the owner contact.

  4. On this page, scroll down to the PROVEDOR DE SERVIÇOS section, where you can select the new Registrar.

  5. Here, you must select the Registrar Newfold (43) from the drop-down and click on SALVAR, to save your changes.

  6. You will now see a prompt to verify the information and confirm your changes.

  7. Once you confirm, the contact will be transferred immediately. You can now use this BR Owner contact to register .BR domain names with DomainPe.com.

Name Servers and Child Name Servers related Rules (Anchor: ns)

  • An IP Address can be associated with only one Child Name Server, however, the same IP address can be reused for Child Name Servers of another .BR domain. For instance, ns1.your-domain.com.br and ns2.your-domain.com.br must have different IP addresses, but ns1.your-domain.com.br can have the same IP as ns1.your-other-domain.com.br.

  • Child Name Servers of .BR domains having the same IP address cannot be used together as Name Servers for a .BR domain. For instance, ns1.your-domain.com.br and ns1.your-other-domain.com.br can have the same IP address, but they cannot be used together as Name Servers for a .BR domain.

  • The Name Servers associated during registration of a .BR domain name need to be authoritative. Failure to provide an authoritative name server within 15 days of registration will lead to cancellation from the .BR Registry.


    An authoritative name server is a DNS server that holds the actual DNS records. i.e. a query made to an authoritative name server will give you the IP address of the domain you are looking for.
