The .FR country-specific extension is the most popular one amongst French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a top choice to get through to tens of millions of World Wide Web users, due to the fact 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 a number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent means for you to reach them.
The TLD was established in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and firms situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a dot FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 active registrations, the dot FR domain name extension is among the most widespread country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to acquire a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online nearly right away. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has specific prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should 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, 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 update the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
