.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code Top-Level Domain is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a perfect choice to get through to tens of millions of web users, taking into account that a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. 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 often use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal means for you to get through to them.
The top-level extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and entities based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a .FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active domains, the .FR top-level extension is among the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to order a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has special conditions 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 difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting companies, above all 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 – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
