Cambio de datos Whois en dominios

Change of Whois data in .tv domains

If the owner's data is changed, the domain cannot be transferred to another provider within 60 days of the change. You will be able to change the whois data of all the domain contacts (owner, administrative, technical, billing) from the client area easily. If you update the field of the name, surname, organization, identity document or email account in the data of the owner contact, a process of change of domain owner will automatically start, which must be accepted by both the current owner contact and by the new one to take effect. (New ICANN regulations 12/1/2016).
Is it advisable to use .tv domains with ñ?
We advise against adding a special symbol that is typical of the language (ñ, ç or an accent), since these are domains called IDN or Internationalized Domain Names. The reason is that they cause problems when managing email accounts, among other things. For example, known mail managers (Windows Mail, Gmail, Hotmail or Outlook) do not successfully send or receive messages for this type of domain. What you can do is register them to protect your brand and redirect them to the domain that you finally use for your website and your mail.
Are there .tv domains that are reserved or that cannot be registered?
Some TV domains are considered premium, and at Webempresa we do not manage them. Don't worry, if you try to register a premium domain, we'll notify you so you can register another domain name instead.
Can I assign my company data in Whois contacts to the .tvdomain?
Yes, you can assign both company and individual data to any whois contact in the .tv domain
