.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific domain is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a perfect choice to connect with tens of millions of net users, having in mind the fact that a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with considerable 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 frequently use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent means for you to reach them.
The domain extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a .FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 working domains, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is one of the most widely used country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to secure a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has special terms about certain records that the name servers of a .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 web hosting providers, mainly 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 interface – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
