Dot FR Domain Registration

The Dot FR country-code top-level extension is the most widely used one amongst speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a perfect choice to get in touch with tens of millions of web users, having in mind that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable 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 regularly use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent way for you to reach them.

The TLD was established in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and businesses based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. In the present day, a dot FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 functioning domains, the dot FR domain name extension is amongst the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.

If you would like to get a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has specific rules about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to 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 firms, in particular resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to change Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
