.FR Domain Names
The .FR country-specific domain name extension is the most popular one amongst French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain will be a perfect choice to reach tens of millions of web users, having in mind the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous 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 a wonderful chance for you to contact them them.
The domain name extension was created in 1986, but registrations were restricted to individuals and entities situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. Today, a dot FR domain can be booked by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over 2,500,000 functioning domains, the .FR domain name extension is among the most widespread country-specific domains. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past several years.
If you would like to order a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will go live more or less immediately. AFNIC, the Registry that handles this TLD, has specific terms about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain need to 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. Many hosting companies, particularly 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 – you’ll be able to update the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
.FR Domain Management with HostMasterG
If you are searching for a new home for your .FR domain names, the Domain Manager interface that we offer is the perfect option. Being both convenient-to-use and fully featured, it allows you to exert full control of all domain name administration tasks. You are able to modify all the important DNS settings with only a click and edit the WHOIS information related to any of your domain names without any difficulty. If you have many domains, managing them from the exact same place is not just doable, but it's actually very simple.
In addition, when you have a hosting account here, then you already know that, besides the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel features a website management section too. In this way, you'll be able to seamlessly move between the two, without having to make use of various Control Panels or to adapt to new interfaces.
