.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most popular one among French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to connect with tens of millions of net users, given that a dot FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent way for you to get through to them.
The TLD was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and companies based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be bought by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million working domains, the dot FR extension is one of the most popular country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to purchase a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has special 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 have any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting providers, especially 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 interface – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
