The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain extension is the most popular one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a great choice to get in touch with tens of millions of WWW users, having in mind that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with substantial 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 perfect way for you to reach them.
The domain name extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and companies based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million working domains, the .FR top-level domain name extension is one of the most widely used country-code extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to register a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has special prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to 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 firms, particularly 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 – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
