.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-specific domain name extension is the most widely used one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a top choice to get in touch with tens of millions of web users, taking into consideration that a dot FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the 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 an excellent means for you to reach them.
The top-level domain was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and corporations based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a dot FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million working domains, the .FR top-level domain extension is among the most popular country-code extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to register a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has precise requirements about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain need to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting firms, especially 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 tool – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
