The cry for support, which in English translates as "I Am Charlie" was inserted as text art in a hidden ASCII message in the WHOIS lookup result for any .fr domain.

AFNIC also voiced their support via Twitter, saying their "commitment to freedom of speech is total. Our thoughts to the victims and their close family and friends."
