.FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR country-specific 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 good choice to get in touch with tens of millions of Internet users, as a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great means for you to get in touch with them them.
The domain extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and companies based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a dot FR domain can be bought by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 functioning domains, the dot FR top-level extension is one of the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to purchase a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has precise rules 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 problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting firms, above all 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 – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
