Why do I have to enter a "Registrant" for .BE domains?

DNS.be, the central registry for .BE, requires that a registrant is set when a domain is registered. During checkout, you'll be asked to specify a registrant name; setting a registrant organization is optional. This registrant information cannot be changed later through the Dynadot control panel. Instead, you have to create a trade order to change the registrant. A trade order costs the same as registering the domain itself. However, it does renew the domain for another year.

To place a trade order, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Select "Manage" from the "Domains" drop-down menu.
  3. Click on the domain name you want to trade (should be a blue link).
  4. Under the "BE Trade" section, fill out the provided form.
  5. Click on the "Create Trade" button to save your changes.
