The .FR country-code domain is the most popular one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be an excellent choice to contact tens of millions of World Wide Web users, since a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great chance for you to reach them.
The top-level domain was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and corporations situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a dot FR domain can be bought by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million active registrations, the dot FR domain name extension is one of the most widespread 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 firm and it will go live more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has precise requirements about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should 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 information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
