.FR Domains

The Dot FR country-code Top-Level Domain is the most popular one amongst French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be an ideal choice to contact tens of millions of net users, because a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with significant 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 perfect means for you to contact them them.

The domain extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and entities based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. In the present day, a dot FR domain can be reserved by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million active registrations, the .FR top-level extension is among the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.

If you wish to book a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go online more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has special requirements about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain need to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting providers, mainly 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 interface – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
