The .FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to reach tens of millions of Internet users, taking into consideration that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent way for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and firms located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a dot FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million functioning domains, the .FR extension is one of the most widely used country-specific extensions. And this number has increased 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 firm and it will go live more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has precise conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain need 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, above all 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 modify the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
