The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most popular one among speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a perfect choice to contact tens of millions of Internet users, due to the fact that a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of 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 a wonderful way for you to get in touch with them them.
The TLD was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and corporations located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a dot FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million functioning domains, the .FR extension is among the most popular country-specific extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to get a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has special rules about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting companies, especially resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .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 information at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
