.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to get in touch with tens of millions of net users, as a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and quite a few of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal way for you to reach them.
The top-level domain was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and companies situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a .FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 active domains, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is amongst the most popular country-code extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to acquire a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has specific 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 encounter any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting companies, in particular 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 alter the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
