The Dot FR country-specific extension is the most popular one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a top choice to contact tens of millions of web users, as a dot FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful chance for you to reach them.
The top-level domain extension was created in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and companies located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a dot FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active domains, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is among the most widely used country-specific domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to grab a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online nearly right away. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has precise terms about certain records that the name servers of a dot 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 web hosting providers, mainly resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
