During the order process, if the owner or the administrative contact don't match these conditions, FranceDNS can offer its trustee or local contact services.
Further information with the naming policy in force at the registry.
A renewal extends the domain name for one year. Renewal procedures must be carried out before the domain's expiration date otherwise the domain will switch to quarantine status for a 30 days period before being removed.
During this period, the domain is no longer active but can still be restored.
To renew or to restore a domain, please follow our reminder notifications or create an order directly in your account, "My orders" > "Renewals".
To transfer a .FR domain name, you need to get its authorization code. Moreover, according to the naming policy, you have to inform your current registrar that you want to transfer the domain.
Once the transfer is initiated by FranceDNS, the current registrar has 1 to 22 days to reject the request. Nevertheless, in case of agreement or lack of response within 8 days, the transfer is automatically realized.
Once the transfer is finalized, the anniversary date is changed to the day of transfer and one additional year is added to the expiration date.
N.B: If the domain name uses the trustee service of your current registrar, you will have to proceed to a change of ownership for FranceDNS. Contact us
This procedure allows the owner to sell a domain name to a third party.
Once the trade is initiated by FranceDNS, the seller and the buyer receive an email from the registry, to have an agreement within 15 days. Once both replies are positive, the change of ownership is realized.
Once the trade is finalized, the anniversary date is changed to the day of trade and one additional year is added to the expiration date.
This procedure can help to settle a dispute between the domain owner and a third party.
