Domain names are managed via ISOC-IL’s Domain Name Management Interface. Any activity related to domain names is administrated through an ISOC-IL Accredited Registrar. Therefore, it is the registrar’s responsibility to enable and assist their clients in managing domain names easily, efficiently and securely. For your convenience, detailed here are the activities and procedures available through ISOC’s Accredited Registrars.
Update: As of November 1, 2016, domain registration will no longer be available directly through the Israel Internet Association (ISOC-IL). The public may submit their requests for domain registry through private ISOC-IL-Accredited Registrars, listed on this site (Please see: Accredited Private Registrars).

TAC: Transfer Authorization Code (Holder-Authorized Transfers) for the Inter-Registrar Domain Name Transfer Processes
Application of the Transfer Authorization Code provides an additional security layer when transferring domain names between Accredited Registrars (i.e., from the Losing Registrar to the Gaining Registrar), granting the domain name holder the exclusive right to initiate the transfer.
To request a Transfer Authorization Code for a domain managed directly by ISOC-IL
How it works:
Upon receiving a request from the registered domain name holder, the Administrative Contact (ISOC-IL) generates a code which, after identification verification (based on the specific transfer process required by ISOC-IL), is transferred directly to the holder. The holder then transfers the code to the Gaining Registrar, who in turn submits a transfer request to ISOC-IL.
Once the submitted code has been validated by ISOC-IL’s system, a permit for Inter-Registrar Domain Name Transfer is issued. The domain name is transferred to the Gaining Registrar within 5 calendar days.
How to receive a code:
Codes may be obtained via ISOC-IL’s Domain Name Management Interface, or delivered by email, according to the predetermined authorization agreement (For Information Security requirements, the TAC is transferred via an email message which requires Holder Authentication).
The code is a temporary authorization code, valid for 5 days. If not used, then a new code will be generated.
The TAC’s validity is nullified under the following conditions:
- When making a request for a new holder ownership (reassignment).
- The domain name has expired/been deleted.
- When a new TAC is generated (usually after the 5-day expiration date).
