Hey everyone, I live in the United States and am trying to register a domain name with the extension .re. It’s a personal site, “re” is the last two letters of my name but anyways I’m reading that you must reside in that country in order to register the domain. I found a site: Ganadi.net that sells it for $15/yr but when I go to check out it has a warning: “Only companies, sole proprietaries, associations, etc. may register a domain name in this extension.” Should I hold off, or risk it? Or maybe I can buy a certificate or something?

Hey mate,

As you can see, it will cost you a lot of money to do this, but you can get a trustee with this service.

You’ll need to find someone in France who you can get to be your trustee. I bet you could find a kind Envato Author who would help you out.
