.fr Domain

.fr is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) in the Domain Name System of the Internet for France. It is administered by AFNIC.

The rules for registering French domains changed on December 6, 2011, and the registrant of a French domain need no longer be based in France. Any European individual, company or organization can register a .fr domain, or any of the others managed by AFNIC:

  • .re (Réunion)
  • .wf (Wallis and Futuna)
  • .yt (Mayotte)
  • .pm (Saint Pierre and Miquelon)
  • .tf (French Southern and Antarctic Lands)

From December 6, 2011, new domain names were no longer available for registration in the official com.fr subdomain, nor in asso.fr or tm.fr. Existing registrations in these subdomains can continue to be renewed.

Registrations are processed via accredited registrars (see link below).

The transfer has to be initiated through our system. A valid Authorization Code has to be provided to initiate a transfer successfully. You may obtain the authorization code from the old registrar. Normally a transfer will be completed in 8 days. After a transfer, our system syncronizes the owner of the domain from the registry to our system. If possible, you can start an owner change if you want to replace the synced owner.


An Ownerchange may produce costs. Please refer to your pricelist. The Ownerchange can be started easily in our system. The old Owner and new Owner will receive an email from the registry and they have to confirm the Ownerchange. An Ownerchange will reset the payed period and the domain will be renewed immediately for one year.
