.FR Domain Registration
The Dot FR country-specific top-level domain name extension is the most widely used one amongst French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be a perfect choice to reach tens of millions of WWW users, given that a .FR domain is more probable to have better French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also states 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 usually use French email providers and search online for French websites, so this is a wonderful way for you to contact them them.
The domain name extension was started in 1986, but registrations were restricted to persons and firms situated in France until 2011 when the process was liberalized. These Days, a dot FR domain can be secured by anybody from the EU, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With over two and a half million active registrations, the dot FR top-level 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.
