The .FR country-specific domain extension is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a perfect choice to get through to tens of millions of web users, since a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot 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 an ideal way for you to contact them them.
The domain extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and entities situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. In the present day, a .FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 active registrations, the .FR top-level extension is among the most popular country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to order a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working almost instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has precise restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not come across any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting providers, in particular 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 modify the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
