.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code top-level extension is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a good choice to contact tens of millions of web users, having in mind the fact that a dot FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine rankings. 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 often use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal way for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and corporations situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a .FR domain can be registered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 functioning domains, the .FR extension is amongst the most widely used country-code domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to obtain a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational nearly instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has precise rules about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting providers, particularly 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 interface – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
