If you live in Europe, you have probably not been able to escape this event, which has united tens of thousands of supporters around 22 athletes who fight over a ball in one of the largest stadiums in France: The European Football Cup.
Driven by the enthusiasm of some football fans at Gandi, we have concocted a promo for the extensions of qualifying countries, which will change depending on the results of the matches: from 15% off for the teams that make it to the 8th finals to 35% off for finalists.
Whether or not you are a fervent follower of each and every match, or totally uninterested in this event, you can take advantage of these promos from 23 June to 10 July, the date of the final, for domain creations at A rates.
So, as of 23 June, here are the extensions covered by the 15% off promo:
Of course, since these are geographic extensions (ccTLD), some registration conditions may apply. To see what these may be, check the information page associated with each extension (click the link in the list above). Please also note that if you want to register one of the extensions marked by *, you must first subscribe to our Corporate offer.
As you surely know, .FR finally switched to multi-year registration on March 30th.
For those of you that are unaware, before that date, a .FR domain could only be registered for one year at a time. Currently, like the large majority of extensions, a .FR domain can be registered for up to 10 years.
In order to celebrate this very good news, during the entire month of May, we are providing you with a promo of .FR domains for 5 years or more, with a yearly price of €9 excl. VAT versus the usual €12 under A rates. For a .FR domain registered for 10 years, for example, this would come to €90 instead of €120 excl. VAT. Note that this promo is only valid for A and B rates.
And for those that already have their .FR domain, if you want to renew it for 5 or more years, you can use the promo code FR5PLUS which will give you a 10% discount on the total price.
Of course these two promos are ALSO valid for the domains of the French overseas departments and territories: .RE (Reunion Island), .YT (Mayotte), .WF (Wallis and Futuna), .TF (French Southern and Antarctic Lands) et .PM (Saint Pierre and Miquelon).
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.
The Landrush phase for 1- and 2-letter .FR domains will allow anyone who meets the registry's eligibility requirements for .FR domains to register available domains, though at a higher price. h The Landrush is divided into 4 weekly periods, each one with a lower price (prices below are excluding VAT):
from 16/02, 15:00 to 23/02: €18,300 for one year from 23/02, 12:00 to 02/03: €12,200 for one year from 02/03, 12:00 to 09/03: €6,950 for one year from 09/03, 12:00 to 17/03: €190 for one year
The renewal of these domains will be at the normal .FR renewal rate (ex. €12 for one year under A rates). There will not be any pre-reservation for a given date, and in the event that the domain was taken before yours, we will refund your order in full.
