.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-specific 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 get through to tens of millions of Internet users, having in mind the fact that a dot FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great means for you to reach them.
The top-level domain was created in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and companies situated 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 2,500,000 active domains, the .FR top-level domain name extension is one of the most widely used country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to obtain a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational more or less instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has special rules about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should 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 providers, in particular 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 update the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
