The Dot FR country-specific top-level extension is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a top choice to connect with tens of millions of net users, given that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many 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 great chance for you to reach them.
The domain extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and firms situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a dot FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million functioning domains, the .FR top-level domain name extension is amongst the most widely used country-code extensions. And this number has risen 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 immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has precise restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain have 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 web 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 tool – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
