Renewal: the domain is deleted one day before the expiration date, and then cannot be restored. Disputes: IMDRP. Change of owner: besides Gandi's usual ownership change process (authorizations by e-mail), it is also mandatory to connect on the Registry's website, and to send authorizations to the Registry. More details in our contract. Transfer (change of Registrar): an auth-code must be requested by the current owner, from the current Registrar. If this is a transfer to Gandi, a request for authorization will be sent by e-mail to the owner or the administrative contact of the domain. Before requesting the transfer of the domain, please be sure that your domain name does not expire soon (we recommend that you start the transfer request at least one month before the domain's expiration). The transfer does not include any renewal.
Gandi provides you with special rates depending on the total volume of purchases that you have made with us over the past 12 months. For example:
If you manage 40 domains or less (at $15 USD each), our A rates apply, and include Gandi's full range of services
For resellers or key clients with over 40 domains, B through E rates are available, depending on the volume of your purchase. These rates may save you up to 50% off our normal rates (example: $8.80 per year for a .com at E rates).
