.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 6 December 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.
