The Assignation Authority for “.es” domain names is going to revoke the accreditation of three Registrar Agents (Chivalges, Siosi and DocumentData), for failing to fulfil the contract signed with Red.s. From 3 March 2015 on, said Registrar Agents will not be able to mediate in the assignation of new “.es” domain names. However, in order to cause the least possible setback to the affected domain name holders, the actual withdrawal will be deferred to 3 April 2025.

As a consequence of the above, we urge the beneficiaries of “.es” domain names managed by Chivalges, Siosi or DocumentData, to transfer their domain names to another Registrar Agent accredited by as soon as possible. The list of Registrar Agents accredited by can be consulted on the following link: /en/agentes-registradores/todos-los-agentes-registradores

In the event that the holders of the affected domain names do not proceed to transfer them before 3 April 2015, said domain names will pass to be managed directly by the Assignation Authority provisionally, for 2 months. Pursuant to section nineteen of the Instruction of the General Director of, 2 January 2010, under which the procedures applicable to the assignation and to the other operations assigned to the Registry under the “.es” are developed, during that period (from 2 April 2015 to 2 June 2015):

  • The beneficiary of the domain name will be able to request a voluntary transfer of the management of the domain name to any accredited Registrar Agent.

  • It will be possible to renew the domain names managed provisionally by the Assignation Authority only once and for a maximum period of one year. The fee applicable to renewals requested during this period will be 4.09 € (VAT excluded).

From 3 June 2015 on, all the domain names whose beneficiaries have not requested a transfer of their management to another Accredited Registrar, will pass to be managed directly by the Assignation Authority, applying the fees for this type of management (27.59 €, VAT excluded).

We remind the beneficiaries of domain names whose management passes to the Assignation Authority, that they will be able to keep the hosting service they hired. However, the Assignation Authority, when managing the “.es” domain names, does not provide any additional service, e.g. hosting, because for “.es” domain names under management of the Assignation Authority, said services will have to be hired with other entities.
