.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-specific extension is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a perfect choice to reach tens of millions of web users, given the fact that a dot FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot of the 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 get through to them.
The top-level extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and businesses based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. At present, a dot FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 active domains, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is one of the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to register a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has special conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain have to 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 web hosting providers, above all 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 change the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
