.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-code domain name extension is the most popular one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a good choice to reach tens of millions of web users, as a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable 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 way for you to reach them.
The top-level domain was established in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and corporations based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a dot FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 active registrations, the .FR TLD is one of the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to grab 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 special terms about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting providers, above all 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 tool – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
