.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most popular one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a perfect choice to get through to tens of millions of Internet users, as a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and quite a few of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal chance for you to reach them.
The TLD was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and corporations based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a .FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 working domains, the .FR domain name extension is one of the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to register a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online nearly instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has specific restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting providers, particularly 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 alter the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
