dotPH Rolling Out Domain Swap Service for Partners

Last May 22, we released an innovative new service called Domain Swap that lets our registrants easily swap their current domain for a new one, whether it’s for their personal brand or for selling on our Marketplace. Since then there has been significant traction among registrants swapping their domains. This includes a domain sale for $5,000 almost immediately after the domain was swapped.

The recent traction on Domain Swap is proof that there is a need for this service. Because of this we’ll be launching it on our Partner Console ahead of schedule. We initially planned on launching the service for Partner Console on Q4 but given the success stories we’ve seen with registrants using Domain Swap, we’ve decided to push its release to this month. Previously only available on the dot.ph site, Domain Swap is now available to our partners via Partner Console, and will be available on Extension Provisioning Protocol (EPP) soon as an EPP extension.

To date hundreds of domains have been swapped, with a steady influx of swaps coming in everyday. The service has become a quick solution for users to easily acquire the domains they want without having to buy or register a new one. And since it lets you swap names anytime for free, Domain Swap also prevents domain kiting and domain tasting, which is good for us (the registry) and you (the registrant).

If you want to swap your current domain for a new one, click here to try Domain Swap now. And if you’re a current PH registry partner, log in to Partner Console to know more.

dotPH Introduces First ever ‘Domain Swap’ Service

dotPH, the official domain registry of the Philippines, is unveiling an innovative domain service: Domain Swap. The unprecedented concept will help domain buyers easily replace their unwanted or unused domains instead of purchasing or registering new ones.

With Domain Swap, registrants can exchange their current domain for any available name for free. And while most registries provide a limited 15-day grace period for newly-purchased domains, Domain Swap lets users change their domains at any time regardless of when they were purchased. Under the service, domainers can exchange standard .PH domains under all extensions.

Using Domain Swap, domainers can easily streamline their .PH domain collection by picking and choosing names that suit their brand. Also ideal for domain users either looking to rebrand or correct typographical errors in their domains, the free service will be a first for both country-code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs) and generic TLDs (gTLDs). Domain Swap also targets buyers unsure about the names they had purchased and domainers who want to make the most out of their investments.

The idea of ‘swapping’ domains was inspired by role-playing video games in which players can swap items with one another. In this case, registrants swap their own domain for a new one using the service in the registry.
