.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-specific top-level extension is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a great choice to contact tens of millions of web users, considering that a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous 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 great means for you to get in touch with them them.
The TLD was established in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and firms situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a .FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million working domains, the dot FR domain name extension is among the most widely used country-specific extensions. And this number has increased 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 company and it will go live nearly right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has specific rules about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain have to 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 firms, 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 – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
