.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-specific domain is the most popular one amongst speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a good choice to connect with tens of millions of web users, considering that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states 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 often use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great way for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain extension was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and companies based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. In the present day, a .FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active registrations, the .FR top-level domain name extension is one of the most popular country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to reserve a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that handles 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 firms, above all 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 interface – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
