.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code top-level extension is the most widely used one amongst speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a great choice to get in touch with tens of millions of net users, having in mind the fact that a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful chance for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and companies located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. In the present day, a dot FR domain can be registered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million active domains, the .FR TLD is amongst the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to order a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has special restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should 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 companies, mainly 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 interface – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
