.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific domain name extension is the most popular one among French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a perfect choice to contact tens of millions of WWW users, since a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant 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 often use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent way for you to contact them them.
The domain extension was established in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and firms located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a dot FR domain can be bought by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million working domains, the .FR domain extension is amongst the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to book a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working nearly instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has special prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have 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 web hosting firms, above all 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 – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
