.FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR country-code domain name extension is the most popular one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a perfect choice to connect with tens of millions of net users, having in mind the fact that a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of 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 an excellent means for you to reach them.
The top-level domain name extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and companies situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a dot FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active registrations, the .FR TLD is one of the most widespread country-code domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to reserve a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates 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 hosting providers, particularly 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 alter the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
