.FR BREXIT Eligibility Updates - January 1, 2021

Effective January 1, 2021, UK residents were no longer eligible to register domain names under .FR or any of the other TLDs managed by Afnic and listed in the Naming Charter (.re, .yt, .pm, .wf, .tf).

UK resident who registered a domain name under .FR or another Afnic TLD before January 1, 2021 can:

  • Keep the domain name after that date
