The Dot FR country-code Top-Level Domain is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a perfect choice to contact tens of millions of web users, since a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful means for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and corporations situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be bought by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 working domains, the dot FR domain extension is one of the most widely used country-code extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to register a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational almost instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has special conditions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting providers, above all resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
