.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific domain extension is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a good choice to get in touch with tens of millions of World Wide Web users, since a dot FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant 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 email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great means for you to get through to them.
The top-level extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and companies situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million functioning domains, the dot FR extension is amongst the most popular country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to secure a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has specific restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain must 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 companies, especially 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 contact information at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
