.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code Top-Level Domain is the most popular one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to get through to tens of millions of World Wide Web users, taking into account that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine positions. 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 regularly use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent way for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and entities located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be bought by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million functioning domains, the .FR top-level extension is one of the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to obtain a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has specific prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting providers, mainly 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 alter the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
