Trends and general information

In particular, companies in French-speaking areas, for example France, Switzerland or French Guiana, buy and register their personal .fr domain. Private individuals, journalists or bloggers can also benefit from the benefits of this ccTLD. National search engines evaluate very large .fr web pages and offer attractive positions and rankings. Now it is possible, following new rules, that everyone can buy and register a .fr domain: The conditions are strongly liberalized. Administrators and webmasters can buy and register their domain independent of residence and nationality.

Being a ccTLD, the .fr domain is very close to the german domain .de, both from European Union .eu but also from the .be domain in neighboring Belgium.


In particular, French companies and private individuals use the .fr domain: Last year, the AFNIC competent register registered over 2 million registered domains. This is much less compared to the 15 million .de domains has registered.
