The Dot FR country-specific domain is the most widely used one amongst speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be an ideal choice to contact tens of millions of WWW users, since a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot of the 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 in touch with them them.
The TLD was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and companies situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a dot FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million functioning domains, the dot FR extension is amongst the most widespread country-code domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to acquire a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has special conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot 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 web hosting firms, 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 interface – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
