Dot FR Domains
The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a wonderful choice to get in touch with tens of millions of Internet users, as 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 regularly use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent chance for you to reach them.
The top-level domain was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and firms located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. In the present day, a dot FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 active domains, the dot FR TLD is amongst the most widely used country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to reserve a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has precise requirements about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to 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 companies, above all 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 interface – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
