The .FR country-specific top-level domain is the most widely used one amongst speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a top choice to get through to tens of millions of Internet users, having in mind the fact that a dot FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect way for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level domain was created in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be bought by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million functioning domains, the dot FR extension is amongst the most widely used country-code extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to book a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working nearly instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has precise restrictions 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 problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting companies, especially resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
