.FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR country-code domain name extension is the most widespread one among 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, taking into account that a dot FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries 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 usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal way for you to get through to them.
The top-level extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and businesses based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a dot FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 active domains, the dot FR domain name extension is among the most widely used country-code extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to acquire a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online more or less instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has special requirements about certain records that the name servers of a .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 firms, particularly 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 – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
