.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code domain extension is the most popular one amongst speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a perfect choice to contact tens of millions of net users, given that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent way for you to reach them.
The top-level domain extension was established in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and entities based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a dot FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 active registrations, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is one of the most widespread country-specific domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to obtain a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online almost instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has special prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting firms, particularly resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
