.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-code extension is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be an excellent choice to contact tens of millions of web users, since a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great way for you to get through to them.
The domain name extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and entities based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. In the present day, a dot FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active domains, the .FR domain name extension is one of the most popular country-code domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to get a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry that manages 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 have any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting firms, above all 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 update the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
