.FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR country-code top-level domain name extension is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a great choice to connect with tens of millions of WWW users, having in mind that a .FR domain is more likely 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 lots of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent means for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million active registrations, the dot FR top-level domain extension is amongst the most popular country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to reserve a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live more or less instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has precise 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 encounter any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting companies, in particular resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
