The .FR country-specific domain is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a top choice to reach tens of millions of World Wide Web users, taking into account that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal means for you to reach them.
The domain extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. In the present day, a .FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million working domains, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is among the most widely used country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to reserve a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working nearly right away. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has precise conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must 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 hosting companies, mainly 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 modify the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
