.FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR country-specific top-level extension is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be an ideal choice to reach tens of millions of web users, due to the fact that a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with sizeable 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 ideal chance for you to reach them.
The top-level domain name extension was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and businesses based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a dot FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active registrations, the dot FR domain name extension is among the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to reserve a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online almost instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has special terms about certain records that the name servers of a dot 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 web hosting firms, especially 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 modify the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
