The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most popular one among speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a good choice to contact tens of millions of World Wide Web 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 substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of 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 a perfect way for you to get in touch with them them.
The domain name extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and entities located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. At present, a dot FR domain can be bought by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active registrations, the .FR domain name extension is one of the most popular country-code extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to book a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live nearly right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has specific rules 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 providers, mainly resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .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 details at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
