.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most widely used one among French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a perfect choice to get in touch with tens of millions of net users, as a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and quite a few of the 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 excellent means for you to reach them.
The TLD was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and entities located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million working domains, the dot FR top-level domain extension is amongst the most widely used country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to order a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational more or less instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has special prerequisites 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 difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting firms, above all 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 tool – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
