Home > Observatory and resources > News > Afnic Legal Encounters, 10th October 2019: Addressing domain name abuse

Rencontres juridiques 2019

Cybersquatting, identity theft, fraud, phishing, illegal content, infringement of intellectual property rights, personality, etc. , all require day-to-day management.

This meeting is an opportunity to take an in-depth look at the range of potential procedures and actions available to prevent and deal with abuse.

We will also be exploring good practices for developing an online presence that is safe from abuse, such as the réussir- resource, Afnic’s services for monitoring and securing domain names, steps you can take to access unpublished personal data, domain name recovery, and how to stop identity theft or delete a domain name, etc.

To round off the afternoon, Afnic’s Legal Department plans to discuss current issues such as EU consumer protection regulations and domain name seizure.

We look forward to seeing you:


On Thursday 10th October 2019 between 2pm and 5.30pm

(Coffee reception from 1.30pm)

at Afnic’s offices in Montigny le Bretonneux, Saint-Quentin en Yvelines


About Afnic

Afnic is the acronym for Association Française pour le Nommage Internet en Coopération, the French Network Information Centre. The registry has been appointed by the French government to manage domain names under the .fr Top Level Domain. Afnic also manages the .re (Reunion Island), .pm (Saint-Pierre and Miquelon), .tf (French Southern and Antarctic Territories), .wf (Wallis and Futuna) and .yt (Mayotte) French Overseas TLDs.

In addition to managing French TLDs, Afnic’s role is part of a wider public interest mission, which is to contribute on a daily basis, thanks to the efforts of its teams and its members, to a secure and stable internet, open to innovation and in which the French internet community plays a leading role. As part of that mission, Afnic, a non-profit organization, has committed to devoting 11% of its Revenues from managing .fr Top Level Domain to actions of general interest, in particular by transferring €1.3 million each year to the Afnic Foundation for Digital Solidarity.
Afnic is also the back-end registry for the companies as well as local and regional authorities that have chosen to have their own TLD, such as .paris, .bzh, .alsace, .corsica, .mma, .ovh, .leclerc and .sncf.

Established in 1997 and based in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, Afnic currently has nearly 90 employees.
