The Dot FR country-specific domain extension is the most widespread one among French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a perfect choice to get in touch with tens of millions of Internet users, having in mind that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and quite a few 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 means for you to reach them.
The domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and entities located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be booked by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active registrations, the dot FR TLD is among the most widely used country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to reserve a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online more or less instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has specific rules about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have 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 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 contact info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
