The Dot FR country-specific domain extension is the most widespread one among French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be an excellent choice to reach tens of millions of World Wide Web users, having in mind that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal way for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain name extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and businesses based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a dot FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 working domains, the .FR domain name extension is among the most widely used country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to order a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working nearly instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has special conditions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should 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, above all 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 interface – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
