The .FR country-code top-level extension is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be an excellent choice to connect with tens of millions of WWW users, as a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent way for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain extension was established in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and entities located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. In the present day, a dot FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million working domains, the .FR top-level domain extension is among the most widely used country-code extensions. 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 live nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has specific terms 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 companies, particularly 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 tool – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
