Dot FR Domain Names
The .FR country-code top-level domain name extension is the most popular one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a top choice to reach tens of millions of World Wide Web users, because a dot FR domain is more likely to have better 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 number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal chance for you to reach them.
The top-level domain name extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million active domains, the dot FR TLD is among the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to book a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has specific requirements about certain records that the name servers of a dot 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 companies, above all resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
