Registry / Registrar Bulletin Skip to main.


.WIN premium domains are now available at HEXONET. There are seven premium pricing tiers and domains are renewed at standard renewal prices like normal generally available domain names. 


Changes to .FR Registrations Requirements:

As of January 11, 2016, birth data will no longer be mandatory for .FR registrants that are natural persons ("individual" contacts). Therefore, the creation and the trade (owner change) of a .FR domain name, with a contact of the "individual" type, will no longer require the submission of the registrant's birth data (birth date and location). Please note that this also applies to the French overseas ccTLDs like .re, .yt, .wf and .pm
