.FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to get in touch with tens of millions of web users, since a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great chance for you to get through to them.
The domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and businesses based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million working domains, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is amongst the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to get a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online almost instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has precise requirements about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain have to 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 .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
