Dot FR Domain Registration

The .FR country-specific top-level domain extension is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a perfect choice to contact tens of millions of Internet users, because a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable 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 electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful chance for you to contact them them.

The TLD was established in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and corporations situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active domains, the .FR TLD is amongst the most popular country-code domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.

If you wish to obtain a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has special rules about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting companies, especially resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain 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 information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
