.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a perfect choice to connect with tens of millions of net users, as a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with substantial 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 electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent means for you to contact them them.
The TLD was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and companies based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be registered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million working domains, the .FR domain extension is amongst the most popular country-code domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to secure a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has special prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to 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 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 alter the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
