.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-specific domain extension is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a good choice to get through to tens of millions of net users, considering the fact that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal means for you to get through to them.
The top-level extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and firms located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 active domains, the dot FR TLD is amongst the most widespread country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to acquire a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has special restrictions 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 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 tool – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
