Dot FR Domain Registration

The .FR country-specific top-level domain extension is the most widely used one amongst speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a great choice to connect with tens of millions of Internet users, having in mind that a dot FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states 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 email 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 created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and companies based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. At present, a dot FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 active domains, the dot FR domain extension is one of the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.

If you wish to secure 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 manages this TLD, has specific restrictions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain need to 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 hosting providers, 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 tool – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
