Dot FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most widely used one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a great choice to get in touch with tens of millions of Internet users, taking into account that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with sizeable 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 regularly use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect way for you to get through to them.
The TLD was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and entities situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be bought by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million functioning domains, the .FR top-level domain extension is among the most widespread country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to book a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has precise rules 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 web hosting providers, particularly resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
