The .FR country-specific extension is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be an ideal choice to get in touch with tens of millions of net users, having in mind the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with considerable 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 a perfect means for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level domain extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and businesses situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a .FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million functioning domains, the .FR domain name extension is one of the most widespread country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to purchase a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has precise restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web 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 – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
