.FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR ccTLD is the most widespread one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a great choice to connect with tens of millions of Internet users, due to the fact that a .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 usually use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great means for you to get through to them.
The domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and entities based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be bought by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 active domains, the dot FR top-level extension is one of the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to obtain a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has specific terms about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting firms, 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 – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
