The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain is the most widely used one amongst speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a great choice to connect with tens of millions of World Wide Web users, having in mind the fact that a dot FR domain is more likely 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 many of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent way for you to reach them.
The top-level domain name extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and corporations located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a .FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 functioning domains, the .FR extension is one of the most widely used country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to purchase a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has precise conditions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting companies, mainly 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 edit the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
