The Dot FR country-code Top-Level Domain is the most popular one amongst French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a good choice to get in touch with tens of millions of web users, as a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large 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 usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect chance for you to get through to them.
The TLD was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and corporations located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a dot FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active domains, the .FR extension is amongst the most widespread country-specific domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to grab a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational nearly right away. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has special rules about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must 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 .FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
