.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-code extension is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be an ideal choice to contact tens of millions of WWW users, since a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of 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 a wonderful way for you to reach them.
The domain extension was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and firms based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be booked by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 active registrations, the .FR extension is among the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to secure a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has special prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should 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 firms, especially 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 – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
