.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a top choice to reach tens of millions of Internet users, given the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of 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 means for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level domain extension was established in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a dot FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million functioning domains, the .FR domain extension is among the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to register a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages 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 come across any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting firms, especially 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 interface – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
