.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-specific domain extension is the most popular one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a great choice to get through to tens of millions of web users, having in mind that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect way for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and entities situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 functioning domains, the dot FR TLD is among the most widely used country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to obtain a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational almost instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has special restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not come across any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting companies, in particular 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 – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
