.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-code top-level domain name extension is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be an excellent choice to get in touch with tens of millions of net users, due to the fact that a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful means for you to reach them.
The top-level domain was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and entities based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a .FR domain can be registered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active domains, the dot FR top-level domain extension is among the most widely used country-code extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past several years.
If you want to order a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational nearly instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has specific restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain need 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 providers, particularly 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 alter the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
