.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-specific domain name extension is the most popular one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a good choice to contact tens of millions of WWW users, due to the fact that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and quite a few 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 a perfect means for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level extension was established in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and corporations based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a dot FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 functioning domains, the .FR domain extension is among the most widespread country-specific domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to secure a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online nearly instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has precise requirements about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have 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 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 details at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
