To be able to complete .CF domain transfers you'll need your current registrar to give you the domain's AuthCode or EPP-Key, with it you'll be able to verify your domain's ownership.
Transfers can take between 5 and 7 days to complete. Some registrars allow to accept transfers manually, contact your current registrar and find out if they offer this service, in this case the transfer will complete the same day.
Transfer process isn't supported by the system..
You can renew your .CF domain at any moment, this process can take between 20 and 30 minutes to complete. .CF domains must be renewed at least 2 days prior expiration day, if the domain is not renewed in this time, the domain will be deleted and only a recovery is possible, witch involves a higher price.
It's possible to ask for the cancellation of your .CF domain, you'll have to do it opening a ticket (support area). Please note the domain cancellation involves no refund of the domain registration fee.
DNS modification is immediate, please note they must propagate through the network, this process can take up to 6-12 hours to complete, until then the domain will still point to the previous DNS servers.
