The .FR country-code top-level domain name extension is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a wonderful choice to contact tens of millions of net users, having in mind that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent chance for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and corporations based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. In the present day, a dot FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million working domains, the .FR top-level extension is one of the most widespread country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to book a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online nearly instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has specific requirements about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain must have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting providers, in particular resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel interface – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
