The .FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most popular one amongst French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a perfect choice to contact tens of millions of World Wide Web users, given that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and quite a few of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal way for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and firms situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a .FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million active domains, the dot FR extension is amongst the most popular country-code domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to secure a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has special terms about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting providers, particularly 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 interface – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
