The .FR country-specific domain 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 great choice to get through to tens of millions of World Wide Web users, having in mind that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with large 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 an ideal way for you to get through to them.
The domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and corporations based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million working domains, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is amongst the most popular country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to book a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has specific terms about certain records that the name servers of a dot 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 providers, in particular 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 update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
