.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-specific top-level domain extension is the most widely used one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to reach tens of millions of WWW users, since a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot 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 wonderful means for you to reach them.
The domain extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and entities situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. At present, a .FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 functioning domains, the dot FR domain extension is one of the most popular country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to book a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online nearly instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has specific requirements about certain records that the name servers of a .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 providers, particularly 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 – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
