.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code domain is the most popular one among French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a perfect choice to contact tens of millions of net users, having in mind the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many 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 perfect means for you to reach them.
The top-level domain extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and entities based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a dot FR domain can be registered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 active registrations, the .FR domain name extension is amongst the most widely used country-specific domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to secure a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has specific prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should 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 firms, particularly 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 tool – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
