.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most widely used one amongst speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a good choice to reach tens of millions of web users, since a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful means for you to contact them them.
The TLD was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a .FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 working domains, the dot FR domain name extension is among the most widely used country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to order a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has precise prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain need 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 hosting firms, in particular resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel interface – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
