.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-code Top-Level Domain is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be an excellent choice to get through to tens of millions of Internet users, since a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states 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 regularly use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent means for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and companies situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million active registrations, the dot FR extension is one of the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to buy a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has precise prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must 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 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 alter the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
