The Dot FR country-specific domain name extension is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a great choice to get through to tens of millions of Internet users, due to the fact that a dot FR domain is more likely 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 often use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great way for you to reach them.
The top-level domain was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and businesses situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million working domains, the .FR top-level domain name extension is among the most widely used country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to reserve a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls 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 hosting companies, mainly 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 edit the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
