.FR Domain Names
The Dot FR country-specific domain is the most widely used one among French speakers and if you own a website in French, such a domain will be a good choice to connect with tens of millions of web users, given the fact that a .FR domain is more likely to have better French search engine positions. This doesn’t include only France, but also states with significant French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and a number of countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a great means for you to contact them them.
The top-level domain was established in 1986, but registrations were limited to persons and businesses situated in France until 2011 when the process was loosened. At present, a .FR domain can be acquired by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million working domains, the dot FR domain name extension is amongst the most popular country-code extensions. And this number has expanded with a whole million over the past couple of years.
If you would like to register a .FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live almost right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that handles this TLD, has precise 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 encounter any problems to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting providers, mainly resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS contact info at any time, to create and to modify Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.

If you are looking for a new home for your .FR domain names, the Domain Manager interface we supply is a very good option. Being both user-friendly and fully featured, it enables you to exert complete control over all domain name management aspects. You'll be able to change all important DNS settings with only a mouse-click and edit the WHOIS data pertaining to any of your domains with ease. For those who have several domain names, controlling them from the very same place isn't just possible, but it's in fact very easy.
Additionally, for those who have a hosting account with us, then you are already aware of the fact that, besides the Domain Manager itself, our Web Hosting Control Panel includes a site management section too. In this way, you'll be able to effortlessly move between the two, and never have to work with separate Control Panels or to adapt to different interfaces.
