The .FR ccTLD is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to connect with tens of millions of WWW users, given that a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states 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 regularly use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a perfect chance for you to reach them.
The top-level domain was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and companies situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a dot FR domain can be secured by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million functioning domains, the dot FR domain name extension is among the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to obtain a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has specific terms about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain must have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not come across any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting firms, above all 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 tool – you’ll be able to edit the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
