The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain is the most widely used one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be an ideal choice to reach tens of millions of WWW users, having in mind that a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great way for you to get in touch with them them.
The domain name extension was established in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and entities situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a dot FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 active registrations, the .FR extension is amongst the most popular country-code domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to register a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational more or less instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has precise requirements about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting providers, especially 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 modify the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
