.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code Top-Level 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 an ideal choice to contact tens of millions of Internet users, due to the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with substantial 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 an excellent chance for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and companies situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a dot FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active registrations, the dot FR top-level extension is among the most widely used country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to obtain a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational more or less instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has special prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to 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, in particular 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 – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
