.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-code top-level extension is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a perfect choice to contact tens of millions of Internet users, having in mind the fact that a .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 lots of the 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 wonderful means for you to reach them.
The domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and entities based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a dot FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active domains, the dot FR domain name extension is one of the most popular country-code extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to order a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has special requirements 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, in particular 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 tool – 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.
