.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most widely used one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a wonderful choice to connect with tens of millions of web users, considering the fact that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots of the 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 ideal chance for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain name extension was created in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and entities situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be registered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active registrations, the .FR extension is one of the most widespread country-specific domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to book a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online almost instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has special requirements about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have 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 tool – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
