The Dot FR country-code top-level domain name extension is the most popular one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a wonderful choice to get in touch with tens of millions of World Wide Web users, considering the fact that a .FR domain is more probable 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 lots of the 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 perfect means for you to reach them.
The domain name extension was established in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and corporations situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a .FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million working domains, the .FR domain name extension is among the most widely used country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to get a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has precise restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a .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 firms, in particular 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 – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
