The .FR country-code top-level extension is the most popular one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to reach tens of millions of net users, considering that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal means for you to reach them.
The top-level domain name extension was established in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and companies situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a dot FR domain can be secured by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million working domains, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is amongst the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to order a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has precise conditions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not come across any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting companies, mainly 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 update the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
