Become a member of AFNIC

Members can take part in the consultative committees and in working groups and meetings organised by AFNIC.


  • Membership is open to any individual or entity interested in the Internet and in domain names


Ever since its inception, AFNIC has always placed particular emphasis on its openness to the French Internet community. Membership of AFNIC, a non-profit association, is open to all those who wish to join and are interested in the Internet and in domain names. AFNIC membership does not depend on having a domain name, and is by no means compulsory in order to register a domain name or to become a registrar

Whether you are a corporation, an internet service provider, a Registrar, a national or international organisation or even an individual, as a member, you can take part in the life of the association and its discussions on the development of the Internet in France. Applying to be a member is very easy: simply fill out the downloadable membership form, and return it with your payment of the membership fee. The amount of the fee depends on the category of membership. For further information read our membership fees.

Members of the association are divided into three categories or colleges:

  • Registrar members
  • User members (individuals or entities)
  • Corresponding members (representing international organisations)


In addition to an online Information area available on the AFNIC website, membership allows you to take part in the consultative committees in each college ("Registrars", "Users", "International"), as well as in the AFNIC working groups . At present there are three working groups that meet regularly and exchange in the meantime by e-mail:

  • Legal affairs
  • Marketing and Communication
  • Technology


The schedule for future meetings is regularly updated in the online "My AFNIC" Area.
