The Dot FR country-specific domain is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a perfect choice to reach tens of millions of Internet users, taking into account that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots of the 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 an excellent means for you to contact them them.
The top-level extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and entities based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. In the present day, a dot FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active registrations, the dot FR TLD is amongst the most widely used country-specific extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to grab a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working nearly instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has special restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting providers, especially 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 interface – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
