.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code top-level domain name 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 great choice to reach tens of millions of web users, taking into consideration that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large 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 usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great way for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and firms situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a .FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active domains, the dot FR extension is one of the most popular country-code domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to purchase a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live more or less instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has specific terms about certain records that the name servers of a dot 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 firms, especially 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 update the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
