The Dot FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most popular one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a wonderful choice to get through to tens of millions of net users, since a dot FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent means for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level domain was created in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and firms situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be registered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million active registrations, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is among the most popular country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to reserve a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls 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 have any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting firms, especially 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 interface – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
