.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific extension is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be an excellent choice to connect with tens of millions of net users, because a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large 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 perfect chance for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and corporations situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a dot FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million active registrations, the dot FR TLD is one of the most popular country-code domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to obtain a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has precise restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain must 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 web hosting companies, 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 tool – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
