After consultation of the participants for Réunion Island through the local Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the AFNIC informs that .re domain names will not be opened to individuals on June 20th 2006.

The participants from Réunion wished to first heighten the use of .re domains by local legal entities before thinking of any kind of
opening to individuals or any modification of the actual Charter.

Therefore the .re Charter will not be changed and the
territorial criterias will stay compulsory for national, european or international trademark holders. These trademarks still need to aim
the French territory. Without domiciliation on the island, these trademark holders cannot apply for a .re domain name.

This means that the June 20th opening concerns exclusively .fr domain names.
