.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain is the most widely used one amongst French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a top choice to get in touch with tens of millions of net users, having in mind that a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large 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 email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal way for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level domain was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and entities situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a .FR domain can be registered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million working domains, the .FR TLD is among the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to order a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live nearly right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has special rules about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any problems 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 .FR domain name 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 change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
