.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-specific domain name extension is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a top choice to get through to tens of millions of net users, considering the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful chance for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain extension was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and corporations based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a dot FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active registrations, the .FR extension is one of the most widely used country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to book a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has special conditions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any problems 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 interface – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
