The Dot 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 a perfect choice to reach tens of millions of World Wide Web users, having in mind that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large 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 often use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect chance for you to reach them.
The top-level domain was established in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and corporations situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. In the present day, a dot FR domain can be registered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 working domains, the dot FR TLD is one of 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 .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has specific restrictions 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, in particular 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 – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
