The .FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most widely used one amongst French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to get in touch with tens of millions of World Wide Web users, given the fact that a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots 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 means for you to get through to them.
The domain extension was established in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and entities situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a dot FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 functioning domains, the .FR top-level extension is one of the most widely used country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to purchase a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has special rules about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting firms, especially 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 update the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
