.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-specific top-level domain is the most popular one among French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a wonderful choice to reach tens of millions of net users, due to the fact that a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous 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 wonderful way for you to get through to them.
The domain name extension was established in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and companies situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. In the present day, a .FR domain can be bought by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 active registrations, the dot FR top-level extension is one of the most widely used country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to purchase a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has specific requirements about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain must 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 firms, mainly resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot 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 contact details at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
