Procedures


Registration:

To register a .FR domain name, the registrant must match the following conditions:

Owner and administrative contact:
Address in European Economic Area (E.U members, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland) and french overseas

If you don't fullfill the rule above, you can register using our trustee service (see our domain services)

Eligible countries are:
AT (Austria), AX (Aaland), BE (Belgium), BG (Bulgaria), CH (Switzerland), CZ (Czech Republic), CY (Cyprus), DE (Germany), DK (Denmark), ES (Spain), EE (Estonia), FI (Finland), FR (France), GF (French Guyana), GP (Guadeloupe), GR (Greece), GB (Great Britain), GI (Gibraltar), HR (Croatia), HU (Hungary), IE (Ireland), IS (Iceland), IT (Italy), LI (Liechtenstein), LT (Lithuania), LU (Luxembourg), LV (Latvia), MQ (Martinique), MT (Malta), NC (New Caledonia), NL (Netherlands), NO (Norway), PF (French Polynesia), PL (Poland), PM (St Pierre and Miquelon), PT (Portugal), RE (Reunion), RO (Romania), SE (Sweden), SK (Slovakia), SI (Slovenia), TF (French Antartic lands), YT (Mayotte), WF (Wallis and Futuna)


During the order process, if the owner or the administrative contact don't match these conditions, FranceDNS can offer its trustee or local contact services.

Renewal:

A renewal extends the domain name for one year. Renewal procedures must be carried out before the domain's expiration date otherwise the domain will switch to quarantine status for a 30 days period before being removed. During this period, the domain is no longer active but can still be restored.


Change of registrar:

To transfer a .FR domain name, you need to get its authorization code.

Once the transfer is initiated by FranceDNS, the current registrar has 1 to 22 days to reject the request. Nevertheless, in case of agreement or lack of response within 8 days, the transfer is automatically realized.

Once the transfer is finalized, the domain's expiration date is extended for 1 year, starting at the transfer date.

N.B: If the domain name uses the trustee service of your current registrar, you will have to proceed to a change of ownership for FranceDNS. Contact us


Change of ownership:

To transfer the registrant of a .FR domain, you need to ensure that the current and new owner email adresses are active.

According to the registry rules, FranceDNS will contact both parties by email to obtain their agreement. Both will have 7 days to approve and reply. If a refusal or no reply is received during the timeframe, the request will be cancelled.

Once the transfer is finalized, the domain's expiration date is extended for 1 year, starting at the transfer date.
