.FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR country-specific domain name extension is the most widely used one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be an ideal choice to contact tens of millions of WWW users, as a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great chance for you to reach them.
The top-level domain extension was created in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and entities situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be booked by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 functioning domains, the .FR TLD is among 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 acquire a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has precise conditions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting companies, mainly 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 interface – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
