The Dot FR country-specific extension is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a good choice to connect with tens of millions of WWW users, having in mind that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many 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 great chance for you to get through to them.
The domain name extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and entities based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a .FR domain can be bought by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million working domains, the dot FR extension is one of the most widely used country-specific domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to acquire a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has specific conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain need 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, 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 – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
