.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-code top-level domain name extension is the most popular one among French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be an ideal choice to contact tens of millions of World Wide Web users, given that a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with sizeable 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 a great chance for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and corporations located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. In the present day, a .FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million functioning domains, the dot FR domain name extension is one of the most widely used country-code domains. 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 almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has special restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting providers, in particular 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 edit the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
