.LI domain registrations can take up to 3 days to complete.
To complete .LI domain transfer, you'll need your current registrar to provide you the domain's AuthCode or EPP-Key to verify the ownership of the domain.
Transfers can take between 5 and 7 days to complete. Some registrars provide manual transfers allowing transfers to be completed on the same day, contact your current registrar to find out if they offer this service.
When the transfer ends, the expiration date doesn't change.
.LI domains must be renewed 45 days prior the last day of the month they expire, for example, if the renewal date is the 25th September, you must deduct 45 days from the last day of september. Renewals can take up to 3 days to complete, we recommend to renew the domain prior to this 45 days to ensure a correct renewal.
It isn't possible to cancel .LI domains once they've been registered.
DNS modification is immediate, please note they must propagate through the network, this process can take up to 24 hours to complete, until then the domain will still point to the previous DNS servers. In order the changes to be done, the registrant must accept the modification using an e-mail he will receive from SWITCH.ch
We allow the usage of DNSSEC on .li domains. Your domain can take advantage of this additional security layer that DNS servers that are compatible with this technology can provide.
