.FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR country-specific domain is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be an excellent choice to get through to tens of millions of WWW users, because a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with substantial 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 perfect means for you to contact them them.
The top-level extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and corporations based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a .FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million functioning domains, the .FR top-level extension is one of the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to get a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has specific terms about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must 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 hosting providers, mainly 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 – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
