The .FR country-specific domain extension is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be an ideal choice to reach tens of millions of net users, given that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine positions. 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 often use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great chance for you to reach them.
The domain name extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and companies situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a .FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 functioning domains, the dot FR domain name extension is among the most widely used country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to order a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has specific terms 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 web hosting providers, in particular resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel interface – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
