The .de registration policy has been changed: According to DENIC's new registration rules it is no longer necessary to provide a local administrative contact for .de domains if the domain holder is not resident in Germany.
However, in the event of a dispute or other problems, the domain holder must provide a contact person in Germany who is responsible for receiving official or judicial documents.
Therefore, the use of a trustee service continues to make sense. From now on we will list the e-mail address of our .de trustee provider as a second e-mail address in the owner contact at the registry. This ensures that the trustee is involved in the communication and can react accordingly in case of issues. From a technical point of view, nothing changes for you.
The .de trustee is an optional, chargeable service. We recommend all domain owners outside of Germany to use this service.
