Because it is important for rights-holders to protect their domain name rights, the association has published a “Practical Guide for Rights-Holders”. This summary document compiles a series of useful, practical items of information, forming an easy-to-follow guide in the world of domain names under the .fr TLD (or any of the other namespaces managed by Afnic).
Readers will learn in particular:
- How to check if a domain name infringes their rights;
- The tools provided by Afnic enabling them to contact the current registrant of the domain name and solve a dispute;
- The procedures and technical operations that Afnic can set up for a domain name, and an explanation of the differences between suspending and blocking domain names.
