The .FR country-specific domain extension is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a great choice to connect with tens of millions of net users, considering the fact that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with substantial 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 frequently use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful chance for you to reach them.
The top-level domain extension was established in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and firms located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. At present, a .FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million active domains, the .FR top-level extension is one of the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to reserve a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has special terms about certain records that the name servers of a .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 companies, particularly resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain 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 change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
