.FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR country-specific domain is the most widely used one amongst speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a wonderful choice to get in touch with tens of millions of World Wide Web users, taking into consideration that a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot 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 contact them them.
The domain extension was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and entities located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. In the present day, a dot FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active registrations, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is among the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to acquire a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has precise conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain need 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 web hosting providers, particularly 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 tool – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
