Dot FR Domains

The .FR country-specific top-level extension is the most widely used one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be a good choice to contact tens of millions of Internet users, having in mind that a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many 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 an ideal way for you to get through to them.

The top-level domain was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and corporations located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a .FR domain can be booked by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 active domains, the .FR top-level domain extension is one of the most popular country-code extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.

If you would like to obtain a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working almost instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has specific conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must 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 web hosting firms, 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 modify the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
