The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most widely used one amongst French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a wonderful choice to connect with tens of millions of World Wide Web users, considering the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries 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 regularly use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great chance for you to get through to them.
The top-level extension was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and businesses situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a .FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million working domains, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is one of the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to grab a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working nearly right away. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has precise requirements 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 providers, 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 – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
