Closing of check4domain CGI

Monday 15 January 2007 00:00:00

For the last two years the AFNIC has been migrating its applications from CGI to WebServices.

In this context, we are planning to close the 'check4domain' CGI (http://www.afnic.fr/cgi-bin/check4domain) on January 15th, 2007. To check if a domain name is available, we remind you the documentation URL of the corresponding WebService: http://www.afnic.fr/doc/interface/servicesweb/Domain#check_domain We thank you in advance for your understanding.

About AFNIC

Afnic is the acronym for Association Française pour le Nommage Internet en Coopération, the French Network Information Centre. The registry has been appointed by the French government to manage domain names under the .fr Top Level Domain. Afnic also manages the .re (Reunion Island), .pm (Saint-Pierre and Miquelon), .tf (French Southern and Antarctic Territories), .wf (Wallis and Futuna) and .yt (Mayotte) French Overseas TLDs.
In addition to managing French TLDs, Afnic's role is part of a wider public interest mission, which is to contribute on a daily basis, thanks to the efforts of its teams and its members, to a secure and stable internet, open to innovation and in which the French internet community plays a leading role. As part of that mission, Afnic, a non-profit organization, donates 90% of its profits to its Foundation for Digital Solidarity. Afnic is also the back-end registry for the companies as well as local and regional authorities that have chosen to have their own TLD, such as .paris, .bzh, .alsace, .corsica, .mma, .ovh, .leclerc and .sncf.
Established in 1997 and based in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, Afnic currently has 80 employees.
