.FR Residency Requirements
The only entities that can register a top-level .FR name are registered French organizations with a SIREN/SIRET number, or anyone who owns a trademark (recognized in France) on the domain they are registering. Either the SIREN/SIRET or trademark number must be provided in order to submit a registration.
Individuals (persons) cannot register .FR names.

In order to activate a .FR domain, you must provide at least two functional nameservers.
