.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code Top-Level Domain is the most popular one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to get in touch with tens of millions of net users, considering the fact that a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many 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 wonderful chance for you to reach them.
The top-level domain name extension was established in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and corporations located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. At present, a dot FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 functioning domains, the dot FR domain name extension is among the most widely used country-specific extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to obtain a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online almost instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has specific conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting companies, particularly 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 update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
