The .FR country-specific top-level domain extension is the most widely used one among French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be an excellent choice to contact tens of millions of WWW users, because a .FR domain is more likely 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 numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great way for you to reach them.
The top-level domain name extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and corporations located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active registrations, the .FR TLD is amongst the most popular country-code domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to grab a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working more or less instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has specific conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should 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 providers, in particular 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 tool – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
