Ré committed to serving the online presence of entrepreneurs!

Ré is the platform with practical advice for SMEs / SOHOs created by Afnic, the registry that manages more than 3 million .fr Internet addresses. And since 87% of French people trust websites with a .fr address, it is the perfect TLD to create a sense of proximity and promote expertise made in France.

Since its inception, Ré has helped professionals develop their business on the Internet. The free monthly newsletter La Box Ré provides practical advice on marketing, legal, commercial and other issues, helping them to launch a business on the Internet, optimize their online presence, and expand their digital “culture”.

Ré focuses in particular on the one million French SMEs absent from the Internet or only present on social networks to show them that owning a website and a personalized domain name is:

  • a simple, fast, and inexpensive process
  • an indispensable step for a relevant, controlled online presence
  • an opportunity whatever their business activity in terms of reputation and business development
  • a pledge of credibility and reliability
  • an even more effective lever when coupled with social networks

Present on the Foliweb section of the Small Business Tech programme

An IP address is a genuine digital calling card on the Internet, since it already says a great deal about a business. Well chosen, it makes it more visible and more credible.
