The Dot FR country-specific domain extension is the most widely used one amongst French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to connect with tens of millions of web users, considering 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 large 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 electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful chance for you to reach them.
The domain name extension was created in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and entities located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. In the present day, a dot FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 functioning domains, the .FR TLD is one of the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to register a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational almost instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has special rules 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 hosting firms, above all 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 – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
