The .FR country-code domain extension is the most popular one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a perfect choice to get in touch with tens of millions of Internet users, taking into consideration that a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful means for you to reach them.
The top-level domain extension was established in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and entities located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a .FR domain can be registered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 functioning domains, the .FR extension is one of the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to book a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has special restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain need to 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 hosting firms, above all 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 tool – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
