.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code top-level domain name extension is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be an ideal choice to connect with tens of millions of web users, taking into account that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great chance for you to reach them.
The top-level domain extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and companies located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. At present, a .FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 functioning domains, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is amongst the most widely used country-code extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to secure a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has special conditions 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 .FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel interface – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
