The main changes in the registration policy are:
- As announced on 8 October 2014, registration of .fr domain names only consisting of one or two character(s) is authorized from December 8, 2014 Update: December 9, 2014.
The opening is scheduled in phases, with a precise timetable.
The opening is only applicable under the .fr TLD and none of the other country codes managed by Afnic: .pm, .re, .tf, .wf or .yt .
- The creation of a registry lock option. Holders may ask their registrar to benefit from this option which prevents any intervention on the domain name without obtaining the prior confirmation of the registrar and/or the holder of the domain name.
