.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code domain is the most popular one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a wonderful choice to get in touch with tens of millions of Internet users, taking into consideration that a dot FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and quite a few of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent chance for you to reach them.
The domain extension was created in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and companies based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million functioning domains, the dot FR top-level domain extension is amongst the most widespread country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to reserve a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online almost instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has special requirements about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting firms, in particular 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 edit the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
