.FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR country-code Top-Level Domain is the most popular one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be an ideal choice to get through to tens of millions of web users, having in mind the fact that a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot 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 excellent chance for you to reach them.
The domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and companies situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be secured by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million functioning domains, the .FR domain name extension is among the most widely used country-code domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to purchase a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has precise prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain have to 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 web hosting firms, in particular resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
