Free .FR domains with hosting availableThe .FR domain is the country-code top-level domain for France and we’ve developed an easy and quick registration procedure for it. What’s more, you can offer free .FR domains with a web hosting plan to each of your customers.

Read below for more details about the official ccTLD for France – a brief retrospection, its registration requirements and info about the registration procedure itself.

Why should you offer free .FR domains?

According to official statistics, France is the second largest economy in the European Union and the seventh largest purchasing power economy in the world (2017).

Therefore, once you get your .FR ccTLD, you’ll have a huge international market to conquer. Should you have an attractive and well-optimized website, you’ll shortly welcome many thousands of French visitors.

If you have a well-translated French version of your .FR website, you’ll be able to target the residents of at least 29 countries (where French is the official language), such as Belgium, Luxembourg, Monaco, Canada, and others. Their overall population exceeds 270 million people.

AFNIC stated that more than 50 million people are currently using the Internet in France.

It’s good to know that 80% of the searches in France are local. Because of this, almost all French businesses use an .FR domain name.

Of course your .FR domain will be ranked higher by search engines in France. So, even if you have invested a lot of efforts and time into developing your site and making it easily accessible to your targeted audience in France, you’ll be positioned below similar sites with the .FR domain name extension.

Don’t hesitate to apply for registration of an .FR domain and enter the vast French-speaking online market!
