.AFRICA.COM domain name registration is open to everyone, without any restrictions.

If your domain is available, you can register it since you represent a company, an organisation or an individual, whatever your country is.


Renewal procedure must be carried out before the domain's expiration date otherwise the domain will switch to a blocked status (not active) for 10 days. If the domain is not renewed at the end of this period, then it will switch to redemption status for another 20 days, during which it can be restored. If not, it will be definitely deleted.

Change of registrar:

To transfer a .AFRICA.COM domain, you need to:

  • ensure that the domain has not been registered in the last 60 days;
  • ensure that the protection against transfers (Registrar Lock) is not activated
  • get the authorization code with the current registrar

If the transfer can be initiated, we will send the request to the registry with the authorization code. It then requests the agreement of the current registrar, it will have 5 days to reply:

  • If the reply is positive within 5 days, the transfer will be carried out;
  • If no reply is received within 5 days, the transfer will be carried out automatically;
  • If a refusal is received, the request will be cancelled;

Once the transfer has been finalised, the domain name's expiration date is extended for a one-year period.

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 asked documents. Once the request is accepted, the change of ownership is done.

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