The .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 will be a good choice to get through to tens of millions of World Wide Web users, considering the fact that a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots 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 a great means for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain name extension was established in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and corporations situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a dot FR domain can be registered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 active registrations, the dot FR TLD is amongst the most widely used country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to book a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has precise conditions 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 problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting providers, mainly 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 interface – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
