The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most popular one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be an ideal choice to get through to tens of millions of web users, taking into account that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful way for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and corporations located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a .FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active registrations, the dot FR domain name extension is amongst the most widespread country-specific domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to get a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational almost instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has precise 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 firms, above all 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 modify the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
