The .FR country-specific top-level domain is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a top choice to contact tens of millions of net 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 large 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 an excellent means for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and firms situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be bought by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 working domains, the dot FR top-level domain extension is one of the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to get a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online nearly 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 encounter any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting companies, in particular 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 tool – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
