.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-code extension is the most popular one amongst French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a great choice to reach tens of millions of Internet users, given the fact that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots 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 get through to them.
The top-level extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and firms based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a .FR domain can be bought by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million functioning domains, the .FR top-level domain name extension is one of the most popular country-code extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to secure a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online nearly instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has special rules about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not come across any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting companies, in particular 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 interface – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
