Receive a daily alert with a list of the domain names registered under the .fr TLD.

 

  • The Qualified Whois Data Access Service (SQUAW) is designed for use by companies
  • The list consists of the domain names, the corresponding registrars and the names of the holders that have registered the domain names (with the exception of individuals who opt for access to that information to be restricted).

 

The Qualified Whois Data Access Service (SQUAW) provides a daily copy from the whole Whois database maintained by Afnic. The list consists of all the domain names registered under the .fr TLD, the corresponding registrars and the names of the holders that have registered the domain names. The anonymity of the individuals holding the domain names is respected. The service can be used, for example, by companies wishing to protect their rights on the Internet, or by registrars offering automated alert services about the fraudulent use of domain names (cybersquatting, spamming etc.), or by companies wishing to carry out market research on domain names.
