FEBRUARY 2015 - N° 036
New services to
support innovation
February 2015 has been a very fertile month for Afnic: we've done better than launch a spring-summer fashion collection; we've launched no less than 5 new services!
Some are available to the community at large, such as Zonemaster, designed in partnership with the Swedish registry for the .se TLD. The new software allows you to check DNS settings, thus helping to improve the resiliency of the Internet.
Other new Afnic services are intended for professionals, as in the case of "Registry Analytics" and "Abuse Report", both of which are solutions to manage registries and monitor abusive domain name registrations.
Finally, users of the .fr namespace have not been left out, as they also have two new features:
  • Fr Lock, which can be used to lock and further protect domain names under the .fr TLD against fraudulent transactions;
  • The possibility to register short domain names under the .fr TLD, consisting of one or two character(s). Currently available at decreasing rates in a four-week "Landrush" period, short domain names will be open to all at the normal rate from March 17 onwards.
