The .FR country-code Top-Level Domain is the most widely used one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a perfect choice to reach tens of millions of Internet users, considering the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. 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 regularly use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect chance for you to reach them.
The top-level domain name extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and entities situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a dot FR domain can be registered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 working domains, the dot FR top-level extension is amongst the most widely used country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to secure a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has precise requirements about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need 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 web hosting providers, 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 interface – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
