The .FR country-code domain is the most widely used one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a top choice to reach tens of millions of web users, considering that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent way for you to reach them.
The domain extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and firms situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a dot FR domain can be registered 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 widely used country-specific domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to acquire a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has precise requirements about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should 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, particularly 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 alter the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
