.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most widely used one amongst French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a great choice to connect with tens of millions of web users, due to the fact that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots 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 an ideal means for you to contact them them.
The top-level extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be booked by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 active domains, the dot FR TLD is one of the most popular country-code domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to obtain a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has special rules 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 problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting companies, particularly 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 interface – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
