Domain names - Trustee and Local contact services


The registries and extensions in different countries have different registration rules. Some registries require the owner to reside or be registered into the local country with proof of registration whilst others require a contact having a valid postal address in the country.

FranceDNS can provide you with the services required to safeguard your domain names in these countries.


Trustee service

This service involves FranceDNS lending its name to the domain name applicant and registering it in its own name. FranceDNS then becomes the domain name's official owner at the registry.

Thanks to specific agreements made with its network of partners, or by himself, we can provide you with a trustee service in the following countries:


  •   .FR - France
  •   .PM - Saint-Pierre et Miquelon
  •   .RE - Ile de la Réunion
  •   .TF - Southern and Antarctic French Lands
  •   .WF - Wallis et Futuna
  •   .YT - Mayotte

Contractual relationship

The Trustee service contract with FranceDNS allows to:


  • lets your chosen names be registered where the registration rules do not allow you to register the extension yourself.
  • can be used at any stage: at registration, when transferring to FranceDNS or at any other time.
  • guarantees your ownership via a contract.

Order this service

While ordering you your domain name, we will compare the owner's information with the extension registration conditions. If the Trustee service is required, you will be able to select it.


Prerequisite to access the service

As FranceDNS lends its name for the registration of the domain name, the client must undergo a verification process during which identity documents must be sent to us.
