The .FR country-specific top-level extension is the most widespread one among French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be an ideal choice to reach tens of millions of WWW users, given that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful chance for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and companies based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active registrations, the dot FR TLD is one of the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to obtain a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has special requirements about certain records that the name servers of a .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 firms, particularly 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 contact info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
