.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-code top-level domain extension is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be an excellent choice to reach tens of millions of Internet users, considering the fact that a dot FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine rankings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and lots of the countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries frequently use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent chance for you to get through to them.
The TLD was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and businesses based in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. In the present day, a .FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2.5 million active registrations, the .FR domain name extension is amongst the most widespread country-specific extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you wish to grab a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live more or less instantly. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has precise conditions about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not come across any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting providers, particularly resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain name with them.
