.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to get in touch with tens of millions of WWW users, considering that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect way for you to get in touch with them them.
The top-level domain was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. At present, a dot FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million functioning domains, the dot FR top-level domain extension is amongst the most popular country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to secure a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational more or less instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has special terms about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to 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, mainly 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 – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
