Dot FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain is the most popular one among French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a great choice to reach tens of millions of web users, taking into consideration that a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great way for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level domain was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and businesses situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. At present, a dot FR domain can be secured by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active domains, the .FR domain name extension is amongst the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to book a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational almost instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has special terms about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need 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 providers, particularly 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 interface – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
