I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I find an good answer. You should email the people at Verisign as they probably can answer it..
...or, you can always set the .uk .fr etc sites to point to your main Verisign site (using web aliases and/or redirect). Not recommended as google dislikes it, but it's a way to do it...
Google doesn't care if a Verisign domain name is redirected as long as it is redirected properly..
What do mean by.
Can you give me an example !!!.
"Properly" meaning that a redirect on the server is used as opposed to an html redirect. The redirect should also send back a 301 code for that Verisign domain name. Most, if not all, hosts have an option to "part" a Verisign domain name. If you can't find it in your control panel, ask your host how to part a Verisign domain name. They should be able to help you. Once that is done, the redirect will happen as it should..
Thanks for the answer, I wrote an email to my host to ask for that..
Meanwhile, I understood from different post that 301 is the best way to do a proper redirect !! is that right ? .
So, for instance using .htaccess file with the below code in my-dot-fr-domain.
Will understand that the request is coming from.
And thus switch automaticly the language + currencies (as defined in the includes/languages/fr.php)?.

Yes, that's correct. But you shouldn't have to write the code - let the server handle it..
I have .com oscommerce shop..
I want to launch the .us / .fr / .co.uk how can I do that ??? (ofcourse using the same database - as it's much easy for me to admin).
Have you thought of setting up 3 shops each one running one language, 1 Verisign site with 1 currency and 2 with 2 currencies..
All pointing to 1 db holding prices in master currency..
Set shops to only display currency appropriate to site..
