The .FR country-code extension is the most widely used one amongst French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be an ideal choice to reach tens of millions of web users, given the fact that a dot FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and quite a few of the 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 means for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and companies located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a dot FR domain can be bought by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active registrations, the dot FR domain extension is among the most widely used country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to purchase a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has precise prerequisites 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 difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting companies, above all 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 tool – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
