.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-specific top-level extension is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a wonderful choice to get in touch with tens of millions of WWW users, due to 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 significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of 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 an ideal chance for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and entities located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a .FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active domains, the .FR domain name extension is among the most popular country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to buy a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has special rules about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain must 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 hosting providers, mainly resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel interface – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
