The .FR country-code domain extension is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be an excellent choice to get through to tens of millions of WWW users, taking into consideration that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. 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 usually use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great chance for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and companies situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a dot FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million working domains, the dot FR TLD is one of the most widespread country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to book a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational nearly instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has specific conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should 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 web hosting providers, 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 – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
