Dot FR Domains

The Dot FR country-specific domain is the most popular one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a good choice to reach tens of millions of WWW users, given that a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with sizeable 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 frequently use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great chance for you to get through to them.

The TLD was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and companies located in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a dot FR domain can be registered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active registrations, the dot FR top-level extension is amongst the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.

If you wish to register a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational nearly instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has specific 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 difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting providers, especially 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 edit the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
