The .FR country-specific domain is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a good choice to get in touch with tens of millions of web users, having in mind that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent chance for you to get in touch with them them.
The TLD was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and firms situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a dot FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active domains, the dot FR top-level domain extension is one of the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to obtain a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live almost instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has precise conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain have 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 web hosting firms, especially resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain 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 change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
