The Dot FR country-specific extension is the most popular one amongst speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a great choice to connect with tens of millions of World Wide Web users, having in mind that a .FR domain is more probable to have higher 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 number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent means for you to reach them.
The top-level domain name extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and corporations situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a dot FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active domains, the dot FR top-level extension is amongst 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 grab a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live almost instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has special terms about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not come across any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting firms, 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 tool – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
