Reasons You Might Need to Change the Owner of Your Domain¶
“Change of ownership” refers to any action of moving a domain name from one owner to another. You may need to change the owner in the following situations.
Note that, in the event of a legal name change, you can learn how to submit a request for a name change here.
If the current owner is a company
A change in the identification number (Siren / Siret, etc.) of the company that owns the domain name
A change of status in the company that owns the domain name
An assignment of a domain name to any third party (even if you have an assignment agreement or if the future owner is somehow connected with the current owner of the domain name)
A merger or absorption of the company owning the domain name by another company
If the current owner is an individual
An assignment of a domain name to any third party (even including if you have an assignment agreement or if the prospective owner is somehow connected has any connection with the current owner of the domain name).
For the majority of our extensions, this “change of ownership” operation does not change the expiration date of the domain name. The process is also usually free (please check our rates page for more details).
