Dot FR Domains
The .FR country-specific domain name extension is the most widely used one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a wonderful choice to connect with tens of millions of net users, as a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot of the 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 perfect way for you to reach them.
The TLD was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and businesses based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. At present, a .FR domain can be registered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million functioning domains, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is among the most widely used country-specific domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to obtain a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live nearly instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has specific requirements about certain records that the name servers of a .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 web hosting providers, particularly resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain 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 information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
