This week, the French country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD), has crossed a milestone with 3,005,270 registrations. According to Zooknic, the extension is the tenth largest ccTLD in the world.
It has been reported that .FR grew by 2.1% in 2016, with the Registry crediting the extension’s simplicity, attractiveness and trust as the main reasons for its success.
Mathieu Weill, CEO, AFNIC said :
Registering a .FR domain name is one of the keys to a successful online presence for companies and individuals alike.
To support the development of their business on the Internet, Afnic has set up the Réussir-en.fr program (réussir-en.fr), and intends to continue its efforts to make France a European leader in online presence.
.FR domain names are available for registration to any person or business with a mailing address in the European Union.
