The Dot FR country-code domain extension is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be an excellent choice to get through to tens of millions of web users, given the fact that a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. 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 often use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal way for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level domain name extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and companies situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a .FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million functioning domains, the .FR TLD is among the most popular country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to book a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has precise prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not come across any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting companies, especially resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
