The Dot FR country-specific top-level 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 connect with tens of millions of Internet users, taking into account that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant 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 usually use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal means for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and firms located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a .FR domain can be booked by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million working domains, the .FR top-level domain extension is one of the most widely used country-specific domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to order a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online nearly instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has precise restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a dot 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 web 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 change the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
