.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most popular one among speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a good choice to contact tens of millions of WWW users, considering that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with substantial 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 frequently use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect means for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and companies based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a .FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 functioning domains, the .FR extension is one of the most widely used country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to reserve a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go online more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has precise restrictions 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 difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting firms, especially 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 tool – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
