.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-code extension is the most widely used one among French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a wonderful choice to get through to tens of millions of World Wide Web users, having in mind that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent means for you to reach them.
The top-level domain extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and firms situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a .FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 functioning domains, the dot FR TLD is one of the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to reserve a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has special terms about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should 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 with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
