.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-code extension is the most widely used one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a top choice to contact tens of millions of web users, considering the fact that a .FR domain is more likely 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 often use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal way for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and firms situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a .FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 working domains, the dot FR top-level domain extension is amongst the most widely used country-code domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to acquire a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has special terms about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain need 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 hosting companies, above all resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
