.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-specific domain is the most popular one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be an ideal choice to connect with tens of millions of WWW users, considering that a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous 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 ideal chance for you to get in touch with them them.
The TLD was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and corporations located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a dot FR domain can be registered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million working domains, the .FR domain extension is one of the most widespread country-specific domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to secure a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational nearly instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has precise restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain need to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not come across any problems 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 name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
