The Dot FR country-code Top-Level Domain is the most widely used one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a good choice to connect with tens of millions of World Wide Web users, taking into account that a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot of the 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 excellent chance for you to get through to them.
The domain extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and corporations situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a dot FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active domains, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is among the most widely used country-code extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to reserve a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has specific prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should 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 interface – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
