The .FR country-specific extension is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a wonderful choice to contact tens of millions of WWW users, since a .FR domain is more likely to have higher 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 frequently use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great means for you to get through to them.
The domain extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and entities based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a dot FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million functioning domains, the .FR top-level domain extension is amongst the most popular country-code extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to secure a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working more or less instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has specific restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain have 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 web hosting providers, in particular 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 interface – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
