About the .fr

Backed by the assets of France, the .fr is a major Internet Top Level Domain with more than 2.85 million domain names registered. With its reliable infrastructure, the .fr is the trusted brand for a successful, digital France.

The website of the .fr has been backing project developers since autumn 2014. “Help youngsters and entrepreneurs succeed with the .fr!” is the corporate creed for the new campaign “Succeed with the .fr” initiated by Afnic.

On Réussir-en.fr, they can all find advice on how to choose and book a relevant domain name, backed by testimonials by entrepreneurs (Guillaume Gibault from Le Slip Français, Alexandre Malsch from Melty, and Stanislas Niox-Chateau from Doctolib).

Why choose the .fr? For its reliability, outreach, reassurance and data security,” says Stanislas Niox-Chateau, from Doctolib.

When we sell on the Internet, there is a real question of trust, and the .fr improves it: customers know they are buying from real traders, and they’re French,” Guillaume Gibault, from Le Slip Français.

Users can also follow MOOC with ten free practical online courses, submitted by entrepreneurs who provide leads for setting up digital projects.

About Afnic

Afnic is the acronym for Association Française pour le Nommage Internet en Coopération, the French Network Information Centre. The registry has been appointed by the French government to manage domain names under the .fr Top Level Domain. Afnic also manages the .re (Reunion Island), .pm (Saint-Pierre and Miquelon), .tf (French Southern and Antarctic Territories), .wf (Wallis and Futuna) and .yt (Mayotte) French Overseas TLDs.

In addition to managing French TLDs, Afnic’s role is part of a wider public interest mission, which is to contribute on a daily basis, thanks to the efforts of its teams and its members, to a secure and stable internet, open to innovation and in which the French internet community plays a leading role. As part of that mission, Afnic, a non-profit organization, donates 90% of its profits to its Foundation for Digital Solidarity.
