  • have the authorization code, that you can get via your current registrar or directly via the registry eurid.eu (whois page)
  • ensure that domain protection is not activated with your current registrar

As soon as the transfer is initiated by FranceDNS, if the authorization code is valid and if the domain status is transferrable, the transfer will be completed within an hour.

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

Change of ownership:

To transfer the registrant of a .EU domain, you need to ensure that the current and new owner email adresses are active.

FranceDNS will contact both parties by email to obtain their agreement. Both will have 7 days to approve and reply. If a refusal or no reply is received during the timeframe, the request will be cancelled.

Once the transfer has been finalized, the domain name's expiration date is not updated.
