Like the large majority of extensions, you can now register your .FR domains for up to 10 years if you wish.

Until recently, the maximum duration of a .FR registration was one year. It was therefore necessary to renew your domain before the anniversary date - which is no longer displayed in the whois, and is replaces with a more customary expiration date.

As with most extensions, the maximum duration can not exceed 10 years to the day. If you have a .FR domain that is currently active, you can therefore not add more than 9 years to it. For transfers, the operation will add one year to the domain's expiration date rather than reinitialise it to the anniversary date.

Note that this important modification is also true for the other national extensions managed by Afnic: .RE, .YT, .WF, .TF, and .PM.

Nothing else changes with their operations.


All that precipitation across just about everywhere but California this winter has meant an explosion of flowers: beautiful red and yellow tulips, purple lilacs, spring is in the air! And so is pollen. But for those of you who aren't allergic (or maybe those of you who are oddly fascinated with the things that punish you with their very existence), .FLOWERS is entering the GoLive phase!  In A rates, a one-year registration will be available at $33.90.

A geographic gTLD very dear to our hearts will be available shortly: .ALSACE.  Why do we love Alsace? If you don't know already, you're missing out.  Here are some hints, though: the colored houses, winstubs, Riesling, Pinot, choucroute, should we go on? The European Parliament, the Council of Europe, Strasbourg Cathedral. Still not convinced? The Christmas market, storks, ARTE!

.ALSACE domains, the extension for all who love Alsace, will enter the GoLive phase on Tuesday April 7 at 6 a.m. PDT (3 p.m. in Strasbourg).

The price of a one-year registration will be $66.16 at A rates.

The geographic extension for one of the world's great port cities, Osaka, is now entering the GoLive phase. Say it out loud with us: "Osaka. Osaka. Osaka." Doesn't it just make you start dreaming of takoyaki or battera with refreshing Osaka sake strolling along the Dōtonbori canal at night with those flashing neon lights? If you have the same fantasy as us (or if you live it!), then a .OSAKA domain might be for you.

To qualify for a .OSAKA domain, you need to either be a resident of the prefecture of Osaka, either as a natural person, a company, or one of the communes in the Osaka prefecture or have a direct or indirect link with the prefrecture of Osaka.

The GoLive price of a one-year registration will be $47.82 at A rates.

It's Saint Patrick's Day and so it seems only too appropriate that .IRISH is entering the Sunrise phase, which will last until May 16, 2015 on a first-come, first-served basis. Ireland, of course, is a land of verdant green, Guinness beer, potatoes, rain and poetry. To inspire you to register a .IRISH domain this spring, we leave you with what was recently voted Ireland's favorite poem of the last 100 years in a Raidió Teilifís Éireann poll, When all the others were away at Mass (from Clearances III - In Memoriam M.K.H., 1911-1984) by Seamus Heaney, a fiercely Irish poet if ever there was one:

When all the others were away at Mass
I was all hers as we peeled potatoes.
They broke the silence, let fall one by one
Like solder weeping off the soldering iron:
Cold comforts set between us, things to share
Gleaming in a bucket of clean water.
And again let fall. Little pleasant splashes
From each other's work would bring us to our senses.

So while the parish priest at her bedside
Went hammer and tongs at the prayers for the dying
And some were responding and some crying
I remembered her head bent towards my head,
Her breath in mine, our fluent dipping knives--
Never closer the whole rest of our lives.

The Landrush phase will last from May 21 to June 20, 2015, and the GoLive phase will begin June 25 at 9 a.m. PST.

The prices (Sunrise, Landrush and GoLive) of a one-year registration are as follows, all at A rates:

  • .irish: $154.14 | $129.15 | $47.82

Remember, the Sunrise phase is for TMCH-registered trademark holders. Contact our corporate support team if you have a TMCH-registered trademark (or would like help registering your existing trademark at TMCH) in order to register one of these new gTLDs during Sunrise. If you are not among the trademarked, you can still pre-register for the Landrush or GoLive phases.
