.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most popular one amongst speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to contact tens of millions of Internet users, given that a dot FR domain is more likely 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 quite a few of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal means for you to reach them.
The top-level domain extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and companies situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. At present, a dot FR domain can be booked by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million working domains, the .FR domain extension is amongst the most popular country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded 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 nearly instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has special conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any difficulties 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 name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel interface – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
