Any hints of where I can find a good list of domain name registrars for Germany and France?
If you have the name of a particular company, then by all means sticky me!
BTW, their web site update makes a world of difference. They look so much more professional than the old web site.
It's astounding how many of these European web sites make it difficult to buy from.
One of the most prominent buttons on an ecommerce site should be the one that reads, "Click here to send us your money!"
What we do not want to do here is naming Hosting companies for each country.
If you know of a good company offering reliable and affordable registering of a variety of Euro ccTLDs to people from everywhere - than this is the thread.
With Gandi you can't register anything but gTLDs, com, biz, net, org etc.
the biggest - and afaik the cheapest registrars/hosting services in europe (the world?) are strato and einsundeins in germany.
you can check them up in domainreport as well.
they offer several cc and top level domains,
all the standard packages, extensions -
but the website is only in german. :(
as for the payment you need to figure out how to transfer
money with a swift code system - because cc cards arent really
common in europe yet ...
as for the european admin contact - there are ways/services around it ...
hope this helps

Einsundeins has .be, .at, .ch (Belgium, Switzerland, Austria). Nothing said about helping to do the formal requirements either?
Neither of those seem to target anybody else than german customers.
Just imagine the following situation: You are located in US or UK and looking to go for localized versions of a site. Where are you going to register all your local domains?
That's what we are looking into really.
We recently registered three non-German domains with them and they were swift and reliable.
They are registrar of several European TLDs (quite impressive).
.ch and .at Domains can be easily registered directly at the official NIC-Sites (that is, if you bring your own namesevers of course ;))
The DENIC changed their policy regarding Non-German residents some time ago.
United Domains offers a "Trustee Service" for Non-German residents.
(no English version though :(...)
The French NIC is quite restrictive about the available domain names (only company names or trademarks are available).
[edit: frell.. how do these smilies work... :)]
