.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-code top-level extension is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a great choice to reach tens of millions of web users, as a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of 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 an excellent chance for you to contact them them.
The top-level extension was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and businesses based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a dot FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million functioning domains, the dot FR domain name extension is among the most widely used country-code 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 go live nearly right away. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has special conditions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have to 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 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 interface – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
