The .FR country-specific domain name extension is the most popular one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a perfect choice to contact tens of millions of World Wide Web users, since a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal chance for you to contact them them.
The domain extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and businesses situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million functioning domains, the dot FR top-level domain extension is one of the most popular country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to obtain a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live nearly instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has specific rules about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting companies, 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 modify the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
