Dot FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR country-specific domain is the most popular one among speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be an excellent choice to reach tens of millions of Internet users, as a dot 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 a lot of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect means for you to get through to them.
The domain extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and companies located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a dot FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active registrations, the .FR top-level extension is amongst the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to order a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational nearly instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has specific prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should 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 web hosting providers, 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 – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
