  • .BOT: Amazon Registry has simplified the process of registering domains. Previously, users were obligated to utilize their .bot domain for deploying a chatbot. Originally designed as a space “specifically for developers and their end customers to find and discover bots,” .bot has now removed all registration restrictions. This modification resulted in a notable surge in domain registrations. On October 27, 2023, there were just 1,312 .bot domains, but by November 3, 2023, the count had risen to 3,333. If you are interested in registering a .bot domain, please contact us below.
  • .FR: If you are the owner of a .FR or another AFNIC domain (.TF, .RE, .PM, .YT, .WF), you should update your WHOIS-data to accurately reflect your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address as soon as possible. The administrator of the French ccTLD .FR, AFNIC, has requested that domain registrars enhance their measures for validating the contact data of the domain owner, effective January 1, 2024. This is part of the process to fulfil the approaching NIS2 directive.
