The .FR country-code domain is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a wonderful choice to reach tens of millions of net users, considering that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect means for you to contact them them.
The domain extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and businesses situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. In the present day, a .FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active domains, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is among the most widespread country-code domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to order a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has precise rules about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting providers, above all resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain name 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 information at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
