The Dot FR country-code domain is the most popular one amongst French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be an ideal choice to get through to tens of millions of Internet users, having in mind the fact that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states 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 frequently use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent means for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and companies based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Today, a dot FR domain can be bought by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million working domains, the .FR TLD is amongst the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to buy a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has precise 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 firms, above all resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
