Dot FR Domains

The .FR country-specific extension is the most widespread one amongst speakers of French and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a great choice to contact tens of millions of WWW users, because a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots 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 contact them them.

The TLD was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and companies based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a .FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 functioning domains, the dot FR top-level extension is among the most popular country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past couple of years.

If you would like to book a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational more or less instantly.

Many web hosting companies, above all resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel interface – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
