The Dot FR ccTLD is the most widely used one among French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be an ideal choice to reach tens of millions of net users, considering that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot 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 a great way for you to contact them them.
The top-level extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and businesses based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. In the present day, a .FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active registrations, the dot FR top-level domain extension is amongst the most popular country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to obtain a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has special conditions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have to 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 hosting firms, in particular resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
