.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-code extension is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a wonderful choice to reach tens of millions of WWW users, taking into consideration that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries often use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal chance for you to get through to them.
The domain extension was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and entities based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a .FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 active domains, the .FR top-level domain name extension is among the most popular country-code domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to register a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live nearly immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has precise restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting providers, particularly 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 tool – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
