Press release
Saint Quentin en Yvelines, April 04th 2008

The AFNIC recently registered the first thirteen domain names under .wf, upon request from the French Government and
Wallis & Futuna local Authorities.
Within the context of broadband now being available in Wallis & Futuna, this move aims at supporting the development of local Internet use.

This first group of domain names gives symbolically birth to .wf, while talks about the marketing of this ccTLD
(country-code Top Level Domain) are about to start.

The AFNIC is also in charge of .pm (Saint-Pierre & Miquelon) and .yt (Mayotte) which registration policy is still
to be discussed upon the local Internet communities and in accordance with the regulatory framework set by
February the 6th, 2007 decree, issued by the French Government.

As a result, the AFNIC joined the Asia Pacific Top Level Domain Association
(www.aptld.org).
