.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-code top-level domain name extension is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a perfect choice to contact tens of millions of Internet users, due to the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot 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 an excellent way for you to get through to them.
The top-level extension was created in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a dot FR domain can be booked by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active domains, the dot FR TLD is among the most popular country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to purchase a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live nearly instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has specific requirements about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need 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 hosting providers, 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 tool – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
