The Dot FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be an excellent choice to reach tens of millions of WWW users, considering that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. 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 usually use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great means for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain name extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and corporations situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be secured by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 active domains, the dot FR TLD is amongst the most widespread country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to obtain a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has special terms about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting providers, especially resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
