Transfer Domain to Bricksite
.dk domains. Make sure to have a functional MitID for Private, Associations or Employees before you begin. The domain should preferably registered to the correct identity from the onset, because any subsquent changes might incur a fee.
International domains. Make sure that your domain is unlocked and that you are not in a lock-in period (usually for 60 days after domain registration). Bricksite locks the domain for 60 days.
It is possible to prepay your domain up to 10 years into the future. Contact Customer Support if you want this. This also ensures that you will not feel any price increases in that period.
Specifically to customers with a Registrar Managed .dk domain: Bricksite does not currently offer Registrar Management, because DK Hostmaster unfortunately still suffers from massive technical challenges with this service, which has been the case since 2021. Therefore, make sure to switch your domain to Registrant Management before proceeding. Please contact your previous domain reseller or DK Hostmaster if you need help with this change. We are working to support Registrar Management by default. Read more about the benefits of Registrar Management here.
