Ascio Local Presence

For some TLDs, it is required that the registrant or contact is located in the country of the ccTLD, or list of countries. For this Ascio offers a representative in the required country.

If the Local Presence is used, the contact-data is replaced with the Local Presence contact of Ascio. Only Ascio's representative will appear in the whois. The original contact data is stored in the databasse of Ascio, and will be used in case a contact is required. The Local Presence is similar to a proxy-contact, with the difference that the contact is in the required country.

Using Local Presence

Local Presence can be activated during the Transfer, Registration or with a Contact Update. The Local Presence Status can be changed in the Contact Update. After transferring away domains from Ascio, the Local Presence should be deactivated. Otherwise important domain messages could be lost. When tranferring in domains with Local Presence, the original contact data should be used, and the Local Presence activated. There are 4 Local Presence types:

Are the procedures the same for Owner Changes or Transfers?

The requirements are the same, however the procedures may differ, depending on the action you wish to take.

Scenario 1

Owner Change – New owner does not have a local presence. When you submit the Owner Change, you must select one of the above categories that suit the TLD requirement and enter it in the LocalPresence field. This procedure would be the same as when the domain was first registered/transferred.

Scenario 2

Owner Change – New Owner does not require the use of Ascio’s LP (they have their own). When you submit the order, you must place the value ‘OFF’ in the LocalPresence field. This notifies Ascio that our LP is no longer required (partner will no longer be charged).

Scenario 3

Transfer In - If the losing Registrar played the role of the Registrant’s LP, then you must select one of the above categories that suit the TLD requirement and enter it in the LocalPresence field. This procedure would be the same as when the domain was first registered/transferred.

Scenario 4

Transfer Away – Typically, the partner will need to submit an Owner Change or Contact Update order to remove the LP, before they can transfer the domain away. See Owner Change Scenario 2 for details. However, keep in mind that many TLD’s have specific requirements regarding Transfer Away orders. Therefore, if you are in doubt on how to proceed, please feel free to contact our Partner Support for clarification.

Please read the TLD-Kit to see which type you need.
