The .FR country-specific domain is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a wonderful choice to contact tens of millions of Internet users, since a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states 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 wonderful means for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and corporations located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. In the present day, a dot FR domain can be registered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million functioning domains, the dot FR extension is among the most popular country-code domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to reserve a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has special requirements about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should 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 dot FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
