The .FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a wonderful choice to get in touch with tens of millions of WWW users, since a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and quite a few of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great way for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and corporations situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a .FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million functioning domains, the .FR top-level domain name extension is one of the most widely used country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to book a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has special terms 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 hosting firms, especially resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot 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 edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
