.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most widespread one among French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a top choice to contact tens of millions of net users, taking into account that a dot FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous 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 chance for you to get through to them.
The domain name extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and businesses based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a dot FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active domains, the dot FR top-level domain name extension is among the most widely used country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to purchase a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live nearly instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has special restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a .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 name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
