.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific extension is the most popular one among French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to get through to tens of millions of web users, considering the fact that a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great way for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and businesses based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. At present, a .FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million working domains, the .FR top-level extension is among the most widespread country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to reserve a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has specific terms about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting providers, especially 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 – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
