Transfer (change of Registrar): the process is started on the new registrar's interface with an auth code. Ensure that your domain does not expire soon. A transfer usually takes 8 days (22 days if the losing registrar refuses the transfer request). The new expiration date of the domain name will be 1 year after the effective date of the transfer, to which will be added, if applicable, the additional years for which your domain name was registered (excluding the current year during the transfer).
Change of Ownership: available on our interface, the procedure consists in email confirmation by both current and new domain name owner. Expiration date remains unchanged
