1 Renewal Restrictions
Your .fr domain name renews before its expiration date. The renewal date depends on whether the domain name is auto-renewed or renewed manually. Auto-renewal is attempted on the first day of the month prior to the domain name's expiration date. If the renewal attempt fails, we re-attempt renewal on the 10th of the month and again on the 20th of the month.
If we cannot auto-renew the domain name and you do not manually renew it by the 20th of the month prior to the expiration date, it must be redeemed. There might be a fee for the redemption. See Recovering expired domain names for instructions on the redemption.
For example: Your .fr domain name expires on October 10. If your domain name does not renew automatically, you can renew it manually by September 20. For automatic renewals, we attempt to renew the domain name on September 1, September 10, and September 20.
2 Transfers Away Requirements
The domain does not need to be unlocked, you must initiate the transfer with the gaining registrar, who will require the registrant to provide an authorization code for the transfer. Please contact our award-winning GoDaddy Guides to request the authorization code.
