The Dot FR country-specific top-level extension is the most popular one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a top choice to get through to tens of millions of WWW users, taking into consideration that a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many 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 an excellent chance for you to reach them.
The domain extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and companies located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be registered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 active domains, the dot FR extension is one of the most popular country-code domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to get a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has special prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must 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 web hosting providers, mainly 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 – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
