The Dot FR country-code domain name extension is the most widely used one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a top choice to connect with tens of millions of WWW users, since 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 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 excellent means for you to contact them them.
The domain extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and businesses situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. In the present day, a .FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 active registrations, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is among the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to secure a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working nearly instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has precise requirements 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 web hosting providers, in particular 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 update the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
