The .FR country-code Top-Level Domain is the most popular one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be an excellent choice to connect with tens of millions of Internet users, due to the fact that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states 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 frequently use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent way for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and businesses based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a .FR domain can be booked by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million active registrations, the dot FR top-level domain extension is one of the most popular country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to secure a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live nearly instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has specific requirements about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain have to 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 hosting companies, above all 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 tool – 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.
