.FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR country-code top-level extension is the most widely used one amongst speakers of French and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a perfect choice to connect with tens of millions of WWW users, since a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and quite a few of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful chance for you to get through to them.
The top-level extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and corporations based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a .FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active domains, the dot FR top-level extension is among the most widely used country-specific domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you want to grab a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be operational more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has specific restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should 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 hosting companies, in particular 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 modify the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
