.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-code domain is the most popular one among French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be an excellent choice to reach tens of millions of web users, having in mind the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal way for you to get through to them.
The top-level extension was established in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and companies based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a dot FR domain can be secured by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million active domains, the dot FR TLD is among the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to acquire a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has specific requirements about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not come across any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting providers, above all resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
