Dot FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code extension is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be an excellent choice to reach tens of millions of net users, taking into consideration that a .FR domain is more probable 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 lots 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 reach them.
The top-level extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and companies located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be registered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 active registrations, the dot FR top-level domain extension is one of the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to register a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has special conditions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting companies, above all 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 – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
