.cf is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the Central African Republic. It is administered by the Central African Society of Telecommunications.

Dot CF, also known as the Dot CrossFire, is an initiative of the Societe Centrafricaine de Telecommunications (SOCATEL; headquartered in Bangui) in partnership with Freenom (previously known as Freedom Registry). The domain has been made available for registration free of charge on Freenom's website, regardless of whether the individual who registers the domain has any connection to the Central African Republic or not. Exceptions include "High Value" domain names, which include trademark domain names for most Fortune 500 companies and common dictionary terms. Potentially valuable domains which are fewer than 4 characters are also marked "High Value". The same applies to other domains offered via Freenom, such as .tk and .ml.

The .cf registry allows the creation of emoji domain names.
