.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code top-level extension is the most popular one amongst speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be an excellent choice to get in touch with tens of millions of WWW users, considering that a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great means for you to get through to them.
The top-level extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and companies based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be secured by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 functioning domains, the dot FR domain name extension is among the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to book a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has special conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain have 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 web hosting companies, mainly 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 modify the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
