The .FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most popular one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a top choice to get in touch with tens of millions of World Wide Web users, given that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant 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 email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent way for you to get through to them.
The domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and companies located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. In the present day, a .FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active domains, the dot FR domain name extension is one of the most widely used country-code domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to grab a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live more or less instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has specific terms about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not come across any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting firms, mainly 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 – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
