The Dot FR country-specific domain name extension is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a great choice to get through to tens of millions of Internet users, given the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful chance for you to reach them.
The domain extension was created in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and businesses situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a dot FR domain can be registered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million working domains, the .FR domain extension is amongst the most widespread country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to order a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working nearly right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has specific rules about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must 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 companies, particularly resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel interface – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
