The .FR country-specific extension is the most popular one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a wonderful choice to reach tens of millions of web users, taking into account that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with considerable 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 email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect chance for you to get through to them.
The top-level extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and entities located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. In the present day, a dot FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million active registrations, the .FR extension is one of the most popular country-specific extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to reserve a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live almost instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has specific prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter 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 with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel interface – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
