The Dot FR country-code Top-Level Domain is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a top choice to get in touch with tens of millions of World Wide Web users, given the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states 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 email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect chance for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level domain was established 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 purchased by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active registrations, the dot FR top-level domain extension is one of the most widespread country-specific domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to buy a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live nearly instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has precise rules about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to 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 web hosting companies, in particular resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel interface – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
