How do I change the ownership of a domain registered with Tucows/OpenSRS?

You can give your username and password to the new owner and allow them to change the contact information at They should also move the domain into a separate profile with a unique username and password.

To change the contact information:

Log into and click on the Organization link and update the information.

You’ll also probably want to change the username/password to something different using the following method:

  1. Log into
  2. Click on the Manage Profile link
  3. Click on Change Ownership of Domain
  4. Enter in a new username and password that will be used to access the domain
  5. Click on Change Owner

If you have a grouped domain profile with multiple domains all grouped together, it is important to remember that anyone with the login information can change all the contacts/ownership information for all the domains in that profile. Ensure you move the domain out of the group profile first before giving the username/password to someone else.
