The .FR country-specific top-level domain is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to get through to 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 countries with sizeable 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 an ideal way for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level extension was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and corporations based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. In the present day, a dot FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active registrations, the dot FR TLD is amongst the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to get a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has precise conditions about certain records that the name servers of a .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 web hosting providers, in particular 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 information at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
