The .FR country-code domain name extension is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a perfect choice to get through to tens of millions of WWW users, given that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. 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 wonderful means for you to reach them.
The top-level domain was established in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be bought by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 functioning domains, the .FR top-level domain name extension is amongst the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to register a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has specific rules about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not come across any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting firms, in particular resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot 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 contact info at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
