A trademark registered for the European Union or a Member State is no longer sufficient to be entitled to register .FR domains. If you are a UK company with a European/OHIM trademark, we recommend using our free trustee service.

Registrants based in the UK who registered their domains before January 1st 2021 are allowed to keep their domain names. From January 1st 2021 going forward, the UK no longer meets the eligibility criteria for .fr domain registrations.
