The .FR country-specific domain extension is the most popular one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a top choice to get in touch with tens of millions of WWW users, due to 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 significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot of the 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 great way for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain extension was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and entities situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. In the present day, a dot FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million working domains, the .FR domain extension is one of the most popular country-code domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to register a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has specific requirements 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 companies, especially resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel interface – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
