The Dot FR country-code top-level extension is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be an ideal choice to connect with tens of millions of web users, taking into account that a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful way for you to contact them them.
The TLD was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a dot FR domain can be secured by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active registrations, 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 want to book a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational nearly instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has precise requirements about certain records that the name servers of a dot 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 web hosting companies, in particular 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 – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
