The .FR country-specific top-level domain is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be an ideal choice to contact tens of millions of Internet users, due to the fact that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal way for you to get through to them.
The domain name extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and entities located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. In the present day, a .FR domain can be registered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active domains, the .FR top-level domain extension is one of the most widely used country-code extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to obtain a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live nearly instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has precise terms 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 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 change the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
