.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-code Top-Level Domain is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a wonderful choice to connect with tens of millions of WWW users, considering that a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal way for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and businesses situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a dot FR domain can be booked by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million functioning domains, the .FR top-level extension is among the most popular country-code domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to secure a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has special conditions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should 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 providers, particularly 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 update the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
