.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain extension is the most widely used one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a great choice to get through to tens of millions of World Wide Web users, considering the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect means for you to get in touch with them them.
The TLD was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and businesses based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a dot FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million functioning domains, the .FR domain name extension is among the most widely used country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to secure a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online almost instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has specific terms 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 difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting firms, 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 tool – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
