The .FR country-code extension is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a wonderful choice to reach tens of millions of World Wide Web users, considering the fact that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect way for you to reach them.
The top-level domain extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a dot FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million functioning domains, the .FR extension is among the most popular country-specific extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to book a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online nearly instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has specific terms about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must 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 companies, especially resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
