.tf domain registration↓
A domain name registration is realtime. It is required that the office/residence of the registrant is within the EU.
If you are registering the domain name with an individual as the owner you will need to supply
- the date of birth
- birth country
If you use are French resident, please besides the date of birth and birth country, complete handle with
- birth city
- birth postal code.
The details of an individual registrant will be hidden in the WHOIS automatically.
The tech handle can not be a person, but needs to be a company handle.
Registry AFNIC maintains a list of domain names to the "reserved" status, for example town and community names. Unfortunately we cannot see this status until the registration request, that will fail with a "2304, Object status prohibits operation" error.
Reserved domain names can be registered if the registrant has a legitimate interest, for example if the name is his company name. Please contact us in such case. The list is available at AFNIC's website.
