.FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR country-code top-level extension is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be an ideal choice to get through to tens of millions of net users, given the fact that a dot 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 numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great chance for you to get through to them.
The TLD was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and entities located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a .FR domain can be bought by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 working domains, the .FR top-level domain name extension is among the most widespread country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to purchase a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working nearly instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has specific requirements about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must 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 web hosting providers, particularly 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 interface – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
