Dot FR Domain Registration

The .FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most widely used one amongst French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be an excellent choice to contact tens of millions of Internet users, due to the fact that a dot FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many 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 perfect chance for you to reach them.

The TLD was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and businesses based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a dot FR domain can be bought by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 working domains, the dot FR top-level extension is among the most widely used country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.

If you would like to purchase a .FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be working more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has specific prerequisites about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain must have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting companies, above all 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 – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS info at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
