.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code top-level extension is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a great choice to get in touch with tens of millions of World Wide Web users, as a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect means for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and corporations based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active registrations, the dot FR extension is among the most widespread country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to reserve a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has special requirements about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to 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 web hosting firms, mainly 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 – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
