.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-specific domain is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a good choice to contact tens of millions of web users, as a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with significant 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 an ideal chance for you to reach them.
The TLD was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and businesses situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a .FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million active domains, the dot FR top-level domain 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 wish to acquire a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that manages 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 encounter 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 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 contact details at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
