.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be an ideal choice to get in touch with tens of millions of WWW users, taking into consideration that a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful way for you to reach them.
The top-level domain name extension was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and entities based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million functioning domains, the .FR domain name extension is among the most popular country-code extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to obtain a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational nearly instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has special conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must 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, above all 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 info at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
