The .FR country-code top-level extension is the most widespread one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain name will be an excellent choice to get in touch with tens of millions of web users, due to the fact that a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with considerable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and quite a few 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 means for you to get through to them.
The domain name extension was launched in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and companies based in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a dot FR domain can be secured by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 active domains, the dot FR domain 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 want to reserve a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live nearly instantly. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has specific conditions about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain should have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting companies, mainly 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 interface – you’ll be able to alter the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
.FR Domain Management with T R I N I T Y
If you are searching for a new home for your .FR domain names, the Domain Manager interface we provide would be the perfect choice. Being both easy to use and fully featured, it enables you to have full control over all domain name management duties. You can update all the basic DNS settings with just a single click and update the WHOIS data associated with all your domains without any difficulty. When you have more than one domains, controlling all of them from the exact same location isn't just doable, but it is in fact very easy.
Furthermore, if you have a hosting account with us, you then already know that, apart from the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel includes a website management section too. Thus, you'll be able to seamlessly switch between the two, without the need to use separate Control Panels or to adjust to different interfaces.
