.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-code domain extension is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a good choice to reach tens of millions of Internet users, given the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great chance for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and corporations located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be registered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active domains, the .FR top-level domain extension is among the most widespread country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to grab a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online nearly right away. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has specific rules 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 web hosting providers, in particular 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 tool – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
