The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain is the most widespread one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a wonderful choice to get through to tens of millions of net users, since a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous 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 wonderful means for you to reach them.
The top-level domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and corporations located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 working domains, the .FR TLD is among the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to reserve a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has special terms about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain have to 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, above all resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
