.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-code top-level domain name extension is the most widely used one among French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a top choice to reach tens of millions of WWW users, having in mind that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect means for you to get through to them.
The domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and corporations situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a .FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million working domains, the dot FR TLD is one of the most widely used country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to get a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has precise requirements about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not come across any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting providers, in particular 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 alter the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
