.FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain is the most widely used one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be an ideal choice to connect with tens of millions of web users, considering the fact that a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent way for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain name extension was created in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and corporations situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a .FR domain can be registered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million working domains, the dot FR domain extension is one of the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to obtain a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live more or less instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has precise conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must 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 hosting firms, especially 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 – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
