The unused domain registration period is retained upon renewal.
What are the restrictions on domain transfer?
Domain transfer restrictions can be technical or administrative. Technical - the domain has expired, or its status does not allow for a transfer in accordance with the registry rules. Administrative - less than 60 days have passed since the previous transfer or change of the domain owner, or there is some restriction of the competent authority or the Court regarding the domain name.
Are domain registration services subject to sanctions?
Yes, they do. Each domain zone administrator is a registered legal entity of the country where he operates. If the government decides to impose sanctions on another country, territory, etc., the domain zone administrator will most likely join the enforcement of sanctions. In other words, if you live in a territory subject to sanctions, you do not need to register domains in the zone where the Administrator is a resident of the country that imposed sanctions.
