.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain extension is the most popular one among French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a top choice to get through to tens of millions of net users, because a .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 quite a few of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent chance for you to get through to them.
The domain name extension was established in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and firms located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a .FR domain can be bought by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active domains, the .FR top-level domain extension is among the most widespread country-code domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to book a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has special prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not come across 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 tool – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
