.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific domain is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be an ideal choice to reach tens of millions of Internet users, given that a dot FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful way for you to get through to them.
The TLD was established in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and businesses situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. 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 2,500,000 active domains, the dot FR top-level extension is amongst the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to grab a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has precise rules about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain must 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, 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 interface – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
