The .FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most widely used one among French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be an ideal choice to connect with tens of millions of web users, having in mind the fact that a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal chance for you to get through to them.
The TLD was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 active registrations, the .FR top-level domain extension is one of the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to acquire a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working almost instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has specific requirements about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain need 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 providers, especially 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 change the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
