.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code domain is the most popular one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be an excellent choice to connect with tens of millions of web users, considering the fact that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the 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 an excellent chance for you to reach them.
The top-level domain was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and businesses situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a .FR domain can be registered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 active domains, the .FR top-level domain extension is among the most popular country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to book a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live almost instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has special rules about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain must 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 .FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
