.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-specific top-level extension is the most widely used one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be an ideal choice to reach tens of millions of web users, because a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great means for you to contact them them.
The domain name extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and businesses based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a dot FR domain can be booked by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 active domains, the .FR extension is one of the most widespread country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to acquire a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has specific prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a dot 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 hosting providers, mainly 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 modify the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
