.FR Domain Registration

The official top-level domain name for France is a first choice extension for French residents and for people doing business in/with France. Learn more about this TLD and how you can get your .FR today with just a few clicks.

Why the .FR domain?

The .FR domain extension can be registered for 1 year at a time and the process is instant - once your order is checked and verified, you are good to go. We will notify you when it is time to renew, so you do not need to worry about losing your domain name. An Edit Whois option is as also available with this TLD. You can also get the French domain you want and then park it until your website is ready with our unlimited parked domains service.

One of the advantages of this country-specific TLD is that you no longer need to be in France to register it. In fact, any European Union based individual or organization can freely register this extension.

.FR will instantly tell your site visitors that your business, personal or charity site is associated with France. The .FR TLD will not only make this connection, but it could also give you more choice than .COM or .NET.

Feature explanation:

  • .FR Registrar-Lock – allows the domain owner to lock his/her domain name, in order to avoid unauthorized, or accidental changes to the domain name.
  • .FR Transfer – means change of the domain registrar; usually 1 year is added to the registration upon successful completion of the transfer. Domain transfer fee is equal to the domain registration fee. In some cases, an EPP authorization key is required. It must be obtained from the domain's current registrar.
  • .FR Edit WHOIS – allows the publicly displayed WHOIS information of the domain name to be edited.
  • .FR ID Protect – allows protection of the publicly available WHOIS information by replacing it with fictitious information.
  • .FR Registration Period – various TLDs can be registered for different periods.
  • .FR Single registration/transfer – this refers to the price of a 1-year registration/transfer for a particular TLD, purchased with a web hosting plan. For the majority of TLDs, the minimum registration period is 1 year. For the TLDs marked with "*" this period is 2 years.
