.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code top-level extension is the most popular one amongst French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be an excellent choice to reach tens of millions of Internet users, having in mind that a .FR domain is more probable 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 quite a few 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 a great chance for you to reach them.
The top-level domain extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and corporations based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a .FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active domains, the dot FR top-level extension is among the most popular country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to obtain a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has specific requirements about certain records that the name servers of a .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 .FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
