.MA domains require the DNS to be active on different subnets and to be authoritative for the domain at the time of registration. You can check if they pass these minimum requirements using our Zone Check tool.
As it is a manual process, .ma domain registrations may take up to 2-4 weeks to be completed.
To be able to complete .MA 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.
When the transfer ends, the expiration date doesn't change.
You can renew your .MA domain at any moment, this process can take between 20 and 30 minutes to complete.
It's possible to ask for the cancellation of your .MA 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 modifications aren't immediate, as this Registry works in a manual manner, these type of modifications may take up to 1-2 weeks to be completed. Once the change is completed, the new DNS servers must propagate, this may take between 6 and 12 hours to complete.
Domain owner change
.MA domains allow to change the registrant but this has to be done using a TRADE process, this process has cost and doesn't imply the domain renewal. Please contact us if you're interested in changing the registrant of your .MA domain.
