  • Patent number: 11329951
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media for enabling secure transfer of Internet domains between registrars. An example method can include receiving, at a registry, a request from a first registrar for information associated with an object recorded in the registry and registered by the first registrar, then generating, at the registry, an authorization code, the authorization code having an expiration. The registry can then transmit, to the first registrar, the authorization code, which in turn can be given to the registrant. The registrant can forward the authorization code to the second registrar, and the registry can receive, from a second registrar before the expiration has been reached: the authorization code and a transfer request for the object, the transfer request identifying a transfer of the object from the first registrar to the second registrar.

  • Publication number: 20200160468
    Abstract: In some examples, a method for validating a consistency of sponsorship can include determining, by a DNS registry, that a second-level domain label of a requested domain name in a first top level domain is related to a second-level domain label of an existing domain name in a second top level domain that is grouped in a top level domain database with the first top level domain. The method can also include validating whether there is consistency of sponsorship between the requested domain name in the first top level domain and the existing domain name in the second top level domain. Additionally, the method can include performing an action related to the requested domain name in the first top level domain if there is consistency of sponsorship. Furthermore, the method can include providing results of the request to a client device.
