.FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR country-specific domain name extension is the most widely used one among speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a wonderful choice to get in touch with tens of millions of web users, due to the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with substantial French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of 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 a wonderful means for you to get in touch with them them.
The TLD was set up in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and entities situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. Nowadays, a .FR domain can be registered by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than 2,500,000 active domains, the dot FR top-level domain extension is one of the most widespread country-code domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to book a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has precise requirements 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.
