The Dot FR country-code top-level domain name extension is the most widespread one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be an excellent choice to get in touch with tens of millions of net users, considering that a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. 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 a great chance for you to get through to them.
The domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and entities situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. In the present day, a dot FR domain can be registered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 working domains, the .FR domain extension is among the most popular country-code domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to register a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational almost instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has precise conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting providers, especially 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 interface – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
