The .FR country-code extension is the most popular one amongst speakers of French and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a top choice to connect with tens of millions of net users, because a .FR domain is more probable to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with sizeable French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries regularly use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an ideal means for you to get through to them.
The top-level domain name extension was set up in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and businesses situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. At present, a dot FR domain can be ordered by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2.5 million functioning domains, the dot FR domain name extension is amongst the most popular country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you wish to secure a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live nearly right away. AFNIC, the Registry that controls this TLD, has specific terms about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain must 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 dot FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to edit Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
.FR Domain Management with ToUdirect
If you are searching for a new home for your .FR domain names, the Domain Manager interface that we offer you is an excellent choice. Being both convenient-to-use and fully featured, it enables you to exert total control of all domain name management duties. You are able to edit all of the basic DNS settings with just a click and modify the WHOIS details related to all your domain names effortlessly. When you have more than one domain names, managing them from the very same location isn't just possible, but it is actually easy.
Also, when you have a hosting account with us, then you are already aware of the fact that, apart from the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel includes a website management section too. In this way, you can seamlessly switch between the two, without the need to use numerous Control Panels or to adapt to new interfaces.
