The .fr top-level domain is divided into a number of second-level domains:

* - for owners of trademarks

* - for associations

* - for surnames

* - for research and development programs

* - for press publications

* - open to all applicants without justification of the requested name

* - for the French administration

AFNIC reserves the right to introduce additional sector-based second-level domains. Registrations are processed via accredited registrars.
