Reporting a domain name that is illicit or contrary to public law and order

In accordance with the French Electronic Communications and Telecommunications Act and the naming policy for extensions operated by Afnic, this form allows any person to bring to the knowledge of the Afnic a domain name under one of the extensions operated by Afnic (i.e. .fr, .re, .tf, .yt, .wf and .pm) that is illicit or contrary to public law and order.


Do not use the form in the following cases:

  • If you are reporting website content, or conduct that is illicit or contrary to public law and order. In this case, please go to the reporting platform of the Ministry of the Interior, Overseas Territories and local authorities:
  • If you have a dispute with an Internet professional or have been the victim of a scam, this does not fall within the scope of competence of Afnic, and we therefore strongly advise you to contact the Directorate General for Competition, Consumer Affairs and Fraud Control (DGCCRF), the authority for dealing with such situations.
  • If you have been a victim of "Phishing", please visit the website of the Phishing Initiative Association:
  • If you have received spam, please visit the national platform for reporting SPAM in connection with the competent authorities:
  • If a domain name infringes your rights and you want to initiate a dispute resolution procedure, please consult our dispute management policy for French Internet domains.


In using this form, you certify that your report exclusively relates to a domain name that is illicit or contrary to public law and order. If this is not the case, Afnic will take no action in relation to your report, and if necessary, will inform the appropriate public authorities.
