The .FR country-specific top-level domain extension is the most widespread one among French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a wonderful choice to connect with tens of millions of web users, given that a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many 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 way for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and businesses situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. In the present day, a dot FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million working domains, the .FR extension is one of the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to buy a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational nearly right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has special requirements about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to 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 companies, above all 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 interface – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
