.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-code top-level extension is the most widely used one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a good choice to get in touch with tens of millions of net users, since a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent way for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain name extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and corporations located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be booked by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active registrations, the .FR top-level extension is one of the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to register a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has specific prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not come across any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting firms, mainly resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – 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.
