.re is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Réunion (a French island located in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar). Along with .fr and .tf, it is administered by AFNIC.

Since December 6, 2011, the rules for registering French domains have changed. The owner of a domain does not need to be based in France anymore. All European individuals, companies and organizations can register French domains. This change affects not only fr-domains, but also .re

Second-level domains[edit]

In addition to direct second level registrations, registrations have been made at the third level beneath these names:

  • .asso.re - associations
  • .nom.re - surnames
  • .com.re - commercial (unrestricted registration)

Domain names at the official subdomains will from December 6 no longer be registered. The owner of such domain names can renew their existing domains.
