.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific top-level extension is the most widely used one among French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a wonderful choice to get in touch with tens of millions of web users, given the fact that a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect way for you to reach them.
The TLD was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and entities based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a dot FR domain can be registered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active domains, the dot FR top-level extension is one of the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to register a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has specific terms about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must 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 .FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel interface – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
