The .FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most widely used one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a top choice to connect with tens of millions of World Wide Web users, since a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of 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 ideal means for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and firms located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a .FR domain can be booked by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 active domains, the .FR top-level domain name extension is amongst the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to grab a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has special restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have 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 companies, in particular 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 – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
