The .fr extension is the official TLD of France. It is managed by AFNIC (Association Française pour le Nommage Internet en Coopération), the French Network Information Centre.
Since 2022, Netim has been a member of their Board of Trustees after being elected from among the registrars' representatives.
Currently, there are over 4 million domains registered in .fr.
The e-commerce market in France is growing fastly, with an increase of more than 10% per year. The .fr domain is therefore a particularly important extension for French companies wishing to develop their business online.
Registering a .fr domain name has many SEO benefits for search engines, especially for Google. Firstly, it tells search engines that the website is aimed at the French market, which can improve its ranking in search results. In addition, 88% of French people believe that the .fr domain name is synonymous with trust and proximity.
Whether you are a French company, whether you advocate "Made in France" or whether you are targeting the French market, create a .FR website now!

Available to everyone with our trustee service
In order to transfer your domain name to Netim, you must disable transfer protections and obtain the authorisation code from your current Registrar.
The transfer may take several days.
When the transfer is finalised, a year is added to the expiry date of the domain name.
To change the holder, you must first go through an authentication process.
To that end, validation emails will be sent to both current and future domain holders.
After a period of 5 days, the request will be cancelled.
The domain expiration date is not affected by the transfer process.
