The .FR country-code domain extension is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to get in touch with tens of millions of net users, because a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal chance for you to reach them.
The domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a .FR domain can be bought by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active registrations, the .FR domain name extension is one of the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to get a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has special restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting companies, in particular 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 tool – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
