The .FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most popular one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be an excellent choice to connect with tens of millions of net users, taking into account that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states 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 usually use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect way for you to reach them.
The domain extension was established in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and businesses based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a dot FR domain can be bought by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million active domains, the .FR domain name extension is among the most popular country-code domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to order a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has precise conditions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any difficulties 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 .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
