.FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR country-specific extension is the most widely used one among French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to contact tens of millions of web users, considering the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots 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 excellent way for you to get through to them.
The TLD was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. At present, a dot FR domain can be secured by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active registrations, the dot FR TLD is among the most popular country-code extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to register a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has specific conditions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any problems 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 .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel interface – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
