The current impact of Brexit

[Update 2019-10-28: Brexit postponed to 2020-01-31]

Due to ongoing uncertainties over the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union, Registries have placed on hold any plan regarding domain names registered to individuals or companies located in the United Kingdom and Gibraltar.
As soon as we receive official updates, we will communicate the instructions on this page and will contact every owner of a .fr concerned by those changes.

Whatever the outcome of the debates, the UK and Gibraltar .fr domain names will have to be deleted.
We strongly recommend to secure your domain names by using our trustee service. Learn more about the advantages of this service here!
