.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-code extension is the most popular one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a top choice to contact tens of millions of net users, considering the fact that a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine rankings. 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 email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal means for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain name extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and firms located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. In the present day, a .FR domain can be secured by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active registrations, the .FR domain name extension is one of the most widely used country-specific extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to secure a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working nearly instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has specific requirements about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have 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, above all 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 – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
