.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific domain extension is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a great choice to contact tens of millions of Internet users, given the fact that a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful way for you to contact them them.
The domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and firms situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a .FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million working domains, the dot FR top-level domain extension is one of the most popular country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to buy a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has special requirements about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should 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 providers, above all resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
