AFNIC : Permanent opening of the .fr registration chain

Starting today, November 27th, 2007, new domain names is now published in the DNS five times a day. This is at the following times: 4 am – 7 am – 12 pm – 5 pm – 11 pm.

As reminder, registration and publication of data via the Whois domain name service is now available round the clock, seven days a week. In operations that do not require human intervention, the ticket workflow continues uninterrupted until the ticket is closed, regardless of the time slot.

The following schema sums the main differences between « Before November 15th », « From November 15th to November 27th » and « After November 27th »:

The AFNIC may set aside a time slot for service interruptions required for management or maintenance. A daily closing time slot is set up between Midnight and 4am.

Some adjustments may be made within one month after this date.
