The Dot FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most widespread one among French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be an excellent choice to contact tens of millions of web users, taking into consideration that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large 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 frequently use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect chance for you to contact them them.
The TLD was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and corporations situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 working domains, the dot FR domain name extension is one of the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to reserve a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live almost instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has precise conditions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting firms, in particular resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
