The .FR country-specific top-level extension is the most widespread one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be an ideal choice to get in touch with tens of millions of net users, having in mind that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent chance for you to reach them.
The top-level domain extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and entities based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a .FR domain can be bought by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million working domains, the dot FR extension is amongst the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to grab a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has specific rules 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 difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting providers, above all 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 interface – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
