.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-specific top-level extension is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a great choice to contact tens of millions of web users, considering that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect means for you to reach them.
The TLD was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and firms situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a .FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active domains, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is one of the most widely used country-specific domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to get a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has precise rules 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 web hosting firms, 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 interface – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
