.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-specific domain extension is the most popular one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a wonderful choice to get in touch with tens of millions of Internet users, given the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many 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 excellent way for you to reach them.
The top-level domain was established 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 ordered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 active domains, the dot FR extension is among the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to get a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has special prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should 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, especially 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 alter the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
