The Dot FR country-code domain name extension is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a perfect choice to reach tens of millions of Internet users, considering the fact that a dot FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great way for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain extension was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and companies based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a .FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million working domains, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is one of the most widespread country-specific domains. And this number has expanded 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 go live more or less instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls 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 encounter any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting firms, 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 – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
