Dot FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-code Top-Level Domain is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you have a website in French, such a domain will be a perfect choice to reach tens of millions of web users, because a dot FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with considerable 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 email providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal means for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain extension was established in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and companies situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a .FR domain can be obtained by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 active registrations, the dot FR top-level extension is among the most widely used country-code domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to get a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live almost immediately. AFNIC, the Registry organization that administrates this TLD, has specific rules 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 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 – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS contact details at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
Dot FR Domain Management with AfterHost
If you are looking for a new home for your .FR domain names, the Domain Manager interface we offer is a great option. Being both convenient-to-use and fully featured, it enables you to exert complete control of all domain administration duties. You are able to edit all of the basic DNS settings with a mouse-click and modify the WHOIS data related to your domains comfortably. When you have many domain names, managing all of them from the same location is not only doable, it's actually a breeze.
Furthermore, if you have a hosting account here, you then know that, apart from the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel includes a site management section as well. In this way, you'll be able to effortlessly move between the two, without the need to use several Control Panels or to adjust to new interfaces.
