The Dot FR country-code top-level extension is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be an ideal choice to get in touch with tens of millions of Internet users, since a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of 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 chance for you to get through to them.
The TLD was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and businesses based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be registered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active registrations, the .FR domain extension is one of the most widely used country-code extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to buy a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has special terms 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 firms, mainly 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 alter the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
