Dysfunction in the opening of 1 and 2 character(s)

Monday 08 December 2014 15:20:00

At 3:10pm UTC+1, we observe a dysfunction during the opening of .fr domain names with 1 or 2 character(s).


We have just stopped the registration system. Our technical team is working to solve this issue as soon as possible.

Thank you for you understanding.
