The Dot FR country-code domain name extension is the most popular one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be an excellent choice to reach tens of millions of net users, having in mind the fact that a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states 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 wonderful means for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and corporations situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. At present, a .FR domain can be bought by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million functioning domains, the dot FR TLD is amongst the most popular country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to purchase a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live more or less instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has precise requirements about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must 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 hosting companies, in particular 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 change the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
