Once the transfer is finalized, the domain's expiration date is extended for 1 year, starting at the transfer date.

Change of ownership:

This procedure allows the owner to transfer a domain name to a third party.

A form between the seller and the buyer should be filled and returned to FranceDNS with requested documents. Once the request is accepted, the change of ownership is done.

At the end of the operations, the expiration date remains unchanged.
