.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR ccTLD is the most widespread one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a perfect choice to connect with tens of millions of net users, considering that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect way for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and entities situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. These Days, a dot FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active domains, the dot FR extension is amongst the most popular country-code domains. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to secure a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has precise prerequisites 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 difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting firms, above all resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain 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 info at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
