Dot FR Domain Names

The .FR country-code domain is the most popular one among French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be an ideal choice to connect with tens of millions of World Wide Web users, since a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot 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 a great means for you to get in touch with them them.

The top-level domain was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and entities located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. At present, a dot FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active domains, the dot FR top-level extension is amongst the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.

If you wish to acquire a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has specific rules about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain need to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not come across any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting firms, particularly 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 modify the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
