Dot FR Domain Registration

The .FR country-code domain 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 reach tens of millions of World Wide Web users, considering the fact that a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a lot of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent chance for you to contact them them.

The domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and firms based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million functioning domains, the .FR domain name extension is among the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.

If you want to reserve a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has special conditions about certain records that the name servers of a .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, 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 alter the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
