The .FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most widely used one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be an ideal choice to reach tens of millions of Internet users, given that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots of the 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 a perfect means for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and firms situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. In the present day, a .FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million functioning domains, the dot FR extension is one of the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to book a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has precise rules about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain need to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter 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 .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
