.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific domain name extension is the most popular one among French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a top choice to connect with tens of millions of web users, considering that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and quite a few 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 means for you to get through to them.
The domain extension was created in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and entities based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. In the present day, a .FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million working domains, the dot FR domain name extension is one of the most widely used country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to get a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry that handles 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 encounter any difficulties 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 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 edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
