Effective Tuesday, January 20, 1998, Network Solutions, Inc. will introduce a new Registrant Name Change Agreement, http://rs.internic.net/reg-change/agreement.html, and procedure to change the name of a Registrant for a registered domain name.  The instructions for completing this new Agreement are on InterNIC Registration Services' web site located at the URL http://rs.internic.net/reg-change/instructions.html.  This new Agreement and procedure will affect those who wish to:

1. Correct typographical or minor errors;
2. Reflect a legal name change of the Registrant; or
3. Transfer the domain name registration to another party.

This new Agreement will eventually entirely replace the current domain name transfer procedure wherein parties are required to submit a Delete and New Domain Name Registration Agreement via email to Network Solutions.  The new Agreement and the old transfer procedure will both be accepted by Network Solutions through Sunday, March 1, 1998.  Beginning on Monday, March 2, 1998, customers will be required to use the new Agreement to effect changes to a Registrant's name.

Network Solutions believes this new Agreement will streamline the process of changing the Registrant's name for a domain name registration while affording greater legal protection to all parties involved.

If you have questions regarding this new Agreement, please contact Network Solutions' Registration Help Line Monday-Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. at (703) 742-4777.
