.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most popular one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a great choice to connect with tens of millions of Internet 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 countries with significant 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 a great means for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level domain extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and corporations situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a .FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active domains, the dot FR domain name extension is one of the most widely used country-code domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to order a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online almost instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has specific prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have to 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, in particular 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 change the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
