Dot FR Domains

The .FR country-code domain extension is the most popular one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a top choice to get through to tens of millions of Internet users, considering the fact that a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently 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 limited to persons and businesses located 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 .FR top-level extension is amongst the most widespread country-code extensions. And this number has risen with a whole million over the past several years.

If you wish to purchase a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry that manages this TLD, has special rules about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting providers, especially resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
