 NETIM is an ICANN accredited French registrar - member of the RIPE - created in 2004 by Bruno VINCENT. The company is now based in Lille.


The year of its creation NETIM obtained accreditation in Belgium, France and Switzerland. This first step allowed the company to fully manage domain names registrations in French speaking countries.

In 2006, the company started its accreditation process across Europe and became accredited in all European countries. Three years later, NETIM launched its reseller program in order to allow major Internet industry players to register and manage their domains portfolio with a high-quality service. The same year, NETIM became ICANN-accredited allowing the company to be an official recognized as an official domain name registrar.

In 2012 the society created a subsidiary FranceDNS, a registrar dedicated to French speaking countries’ extensions. This company is mainly popular in Africa thanks to its involvement in local activities aiming at developing the internet across the continent and with .africa[1].

2014 with the launch of the new generic TLDs, NETIM presented a new optimized website displaying its largest offers with over 900 extensions available to registration.


Domain Names: NETIM provides extensions from all over the world ranging from ccTlds, gTlds to IDNs (internationalized domain names)[2]

Web hosting: Different package are available in their shared hosting offer, depending on customer needs. Their PLESK interface allows an easy daily administration of the web hosting.

SSL certificates: NETIM provides three kind of certificates : Single domain, multi-domains and Wildcard. Each offer is available in different versions going from basic to advanced features, allowing the domain validation (DV) as well as the company validation (EV).  

Reseller program: Their reseller offer is very popular thanks to its API allowing the automation of the different services. The company developed its own WHMCS module[3] to improve customer management, billing and support for the resellers.


While some of the biggest engage an aggressive pricing policy on popular extensions, NETIM’ strategy is based on a transparency policy with no hidden cost and banish introductory prices such as $9.99. The company aims at preserving customer liberty and each product can be ordered independently from each other. In other words, the customer can have its domain name with another registrar and have a messaging solution with NETIM.

NETIM is known for its quality of service and as a worldwide provider allowing domain names registrations all over the world thanks to its large network of accreditations.
