After requesting the domain registration, the registrant and administrative contact receive two e-mails from the Registry (Nic.nf), the first of them is the welcome message, but the second one is a activation e-mail, that contains a link that has to be clicked in order to accept the TLD Registrant Agreement and AUP policy and accept and confirm the validity of contact details.
Any future change, even renewals or registrant changes the same process must be done.
To be able to complete .NF 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.

It's possible to ask for the cancellation of your .NF 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.
We allow the usage of DNSSEC on .nf domains, thanks to it your domain will be able to take advantage of an additional security layer that DNS servers that are compatible with this tecnology can provide.
