Used to split a contact in two separate contacts. Main purpose is to enable updates to a contact when a registry does not allow a specific update without having to update all domains using the contact. In this case the "split" can be used to separate the prohibiting registries to a new contact, enabling the existing contact to be updated.
The new contact will have the same contact details and validations are copied. Additional properties will be moved to the new contact for the selected registries, others will stay at the old contact.
All domains from the selected registries, using the old contact, will be updated to use the new contact. No actual change is made at the registry.
This method can also be used to duplicate a contact while retaining it's validations.
Generic errors can be expected.
