.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-code top-level extension is the most widely used one amongst speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be an ideal choice to connect with tens of millions of World Wide Web users, given the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of 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 means for you to reach them.
The domain name extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and firms based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a .FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active domains, the dot FR domain extension is amongst the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to buy a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online almost instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that administrates this TLD, has specific prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain have 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 hosting companies, particularly resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain 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 info at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
