.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a perfect choice to reach tens of millions of World Wide Web users, given the fact that a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots 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 an ideal chance for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and companies based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a .FR domain can be booked by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million functioning domains, the .FR domain name extension is among the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to reserve a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational nearly instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has specific terms about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain have 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 dot FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel interface – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
