The .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 will be an excellent choice to contact tens of millions of net users, taking into account that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with substantial 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 usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful means for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and businesses situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a .FR domain can be booked by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active domains, the dot FR domain name extension is amongst the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to get a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has specific requirements 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 hosting firms, especially resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
