.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 will be a good choice to contact tens of millions of Internet users, having in mind that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots of the 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 perfect chance for you to get through to them.
The domain extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and firms located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be obtained 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 amongst the most widespread country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to acquire a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has precise terms about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not come across any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting companies, above all resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
