The .FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be an ideal choice to get through to tens of millions of WWW users, having in mind the fact that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal chance for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level domain extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and entities located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a .FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million functioning domains, the .FR extension is among the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to purchase a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has specific terms about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should 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 web hosting firms, particularly resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
