.FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most popular one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be an ideal choice to connect with tens of millions of World Wide Web users, since a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the 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 an ideal means for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain name extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and companies based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a dot FR domain can be registered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million working domains, the .FR domain extension is amongst the most widespread country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to get a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has special requirements about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have 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 change the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
