Domain registration and transferring: FR

In this article, we will give you an overview of the requirements for transferring or registering a .FR domain at HostPapa. 

How to register a domain name with HostPapa

.FR domains are only available to individuals and organizations located in the European Union, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, or Liechtenstein. Specific information is required based on your location. Please see below for more details. 

Organizations may submit their SIREN or SIRET, Trademark or VAT Number. This is not mandatory, but we strongly recommend that you provide this information to help validate the registration.

To check prices or register one of these domains, visit our domain page or purchase directly from your HostPapa Dashboard by clicking on My Domains, then Register New Domain to open a Secure Order Form. 


How to transfer a domain name to HostPapa

Before you request to transfer your domain name to HostPapa, there are a few steps you should complete to ensure a smooth transfer: 

  1. Unlock your domain name at your current registrar. Each domain registrar may have different steps to unlock the domain. If you can’t find this option in the general settings, please contact your domain registrar. 
  2. Obtain an authorization code (EPP Key, also known as Auth-Code or transfer code). This code is necessary for the transfer and should be provided by your current registrar. 
  3. Our registrar, OpenSRS, will send an email to the address on file immediately after you purchase the transfer. The email contains the verification link where you will input the transfer code to authorize the transfer in your HostPapa account.


  1. Please ensure enough time to initiate the domain transfer before its expiration/renewal date. Transfers can take up to seven days to complete. To prevent your domain from becoming non-functional during the transfer, we recommend making this request at least two weeks before your domain’s expiry date.
