.FR Domain Names
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 will be an ideal choice to contact tens of millions of Internet users, taking into account that a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine standings. 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 usually use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect means for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and entities based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be bought by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 active registrations, the dot FR top-level domain extension is among the most popular country-code extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to acquire a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has specific requirements about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting companies, 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 edit the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
