.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-code Top-Level Domain is the most popular one amongst speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a top choice to connect with tens of millions of Internet users, because a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot 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 a wonderful means for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain name extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a dot FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million working domains, the dot FR TLD 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 would like to reserve a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has precise conditions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain must 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 firms, above all resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
