I see eurodns state:Restriction for domain : .fr-Local Company requestedIf you do not have a local company, EuroDNS France will automatically become the domain holder and send you a certificate of ownership.Once the domain is registered it will be allocated to your EuroDNS account and you will gain full access to the domain.EuroDNS reserve the right to cancel this .FR domain immediately, should any of the terms and conditions in relation to this TLD be broken.It will be interesting to see whether afnic get wise to this circumventing of their phasing and start cancelling registrations.

Hi,

You might want to try http://www.eurodns.com

I have just set up a .fr domain through them and I am English, now living in Golfe Juan with a UK registered and run company. No problems.

If you need any more info let me know.

http://www.afnic.fr/obtenir/ouverture#personnes states: L'ouverture s'effectue en deux phases.Dès le 11 mai 2004Sont concernées pour cette première phase toutes les personnes identifiables sur les bases de données nationales de l'INPI, de l'INSEE et des Greffes, c'est-à-dire : * les titulaires d'une marque déposée, * les sociétes, entreprises, * les associations immatriculées à l'INSEE (ayant un numéro SIRET - SIREN), * les professions libérales, * les artisans, * les collectivités publiques, * etc.Début 2005Après analyse de l'ouverture du 11 mai 2004, les nouvelles conditions pour l'enregistrement en .fr ou .re seront ouvertes à tous : * tous les cas cités ci-dessus, plus * les particuliers, * les associations non immatriculées à l'INSEE, * etc.So it looks as though you will need to wait until early 2005 if you are an individual or otherwise non-registered.

Hi Gerbil Yes they do BUT to do it you need a SIRET / SIREH number. so question remains has anybody done it without a number?

Have you looked at the web sites of companies providing registration e.g. www.1and1.fr or www.amen.frThey both appear to offer online registration.
