API commands

Please find in the following a set of the most commonly used standard API commands in order to register, modify, renew, and transfer a domain name.

Domain Registration

AddDomain is not available for .com.fr TLDs.

Domain Modification

(API Command reference » ModifyDomain)
command = ModifyDomain
domain  = yourdomain.com.fr

Change of registrant

Trade operations for .com.fr domain names are processed as Recover. The trade for .com.fr is only possible in the following case:

  • A parent company based outside Europe sends its domain name to a subsidiary based in the European Union ( Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway included ) to benefit eligibility under the new charter and so to ensure the best protection.

If this is the case, please send us a letter of authorization fully filled out with the handle for the incoming registrant. AFNIC will provide us an authorization code afterwards.

Domain Renewal

command    = RenewDomain

The following details are required:

  • auth-code
  • new admin-contact handle (please note: admin contact must be located in EU)

Transfer notes

  • The registrar change request is made by the new registrar. It is the auth-code given by the holder to the incoming registrar that validates this request.
  • The outgoing registrar receives a registrar change notification:
    • If the outgoing registrar accepts within 8 days, the registrar change is immediately validated.
    • If the outgoing registrar refuses within 8 days, the total duration of the registrar change operation is extended to 22 days before validation. The outgoing registrar may still accept the transfer before the 22 days.
    • If the outgoing registrar does not react within 8 days, the registrar change is immediately validated at the end of the 8 days.
  • The transfer operation is billed and changes the expiration date of the domain name. The lifetime starts from beginning.
  • Trade and transfer at the same time are NOT possible anymore since 2015/06/30

Domain Restore

RestoreDomain is not available for .com.fr TLDs.

Restores are not longer available for .com.fr due to registry policy changes.
