.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-specific 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 excellent choice to connect with tens of millions of World Wide Web users, given the fact that a dot FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and quite a few of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great way for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a dot FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million functioning domains, the dot FR TLD is one of the most widely used country-code domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to acquire a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has special prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have to 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 hosting firms, particularly 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 – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
