.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific domain name extension is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to get through to tens of millions of World Wide Web users, taking into consideration that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot of the 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 wonderful chance for you to reach them.
The top-level domain was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and corporations based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a .FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million functioning domains, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is among the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to obtain a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online nearly instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has precise prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should 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, above all 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 tool – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
