.FR Domain Registration
The .FR country-code domain extension is the most widespread one among French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain name will be a wonderful choice to reach tens of millions of World Wide Web users, considering that a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and many of the 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 a great means for you to contact them them.
The domain extension was started in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and businesses located in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a dot FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million active domains, the .FR top-level domain name extension is one of the most widely used country-code extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to buy a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will be working more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has precise rules about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain should 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 companies, above all 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 – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS contact information at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
.FR Domain Management with Web and Host Service
If you are looking for a new home for your .FR domains, the Domain Manager interface we offer you is a really good option. Being both easy to use and fully featured, it allows you to exert full control of all domain management duties. You are able to edit all the crucial DNS settings with a single click and customize the WHOIS details related to all your domain names without difficulty. For those who have several domains, managing all of them from the same location is not just doable, but it is actually very simple.
Furthermore, when you have a hosting account with us, you then are already aware that, apart from the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel has a site management section as well. In this way, you can seamlessly switch between the two, and never have to use separate Control Panels or to get familiar with new interfaces.
