.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-code top-level extension is the most widely used one amongst French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be an excellent choice to get through to tens of millions of net users, due to the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous 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 ideal means for you to reach them.
The top-level domain name extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and firms located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active registrations, the .FR domain extension is one of the most popular country-specific extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to purchase a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has special conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting firms, in particular 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 update the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
