The Dot FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a top choice to connect with tens of millions of net users, considering that a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with significant 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 email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal means for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain extension was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and firms located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a dot FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million active domains, the dot FR TLD is one of the most widespread country-code domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to buy a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has specific rules about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should 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, mainly resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
