Nowadays, a .FR domain can be purchased by anybody from the European Union, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. With more than two and a half million working domains, the dot FR TLD is amongst the most widespread country-code domains.

If you wish to obtain a dot FR domain, you can do it through our company and it will go live more or less right away. AFNIC, the Registry organization that manages this TLD, has special terms about certain records that the name servers of a .FR domain have to have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not encounter any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many web hosting firms, above all resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a .FR domain name with them. You will have full control over your domain through our Hepsia Control Panel tool – you’ll be able to change the WHOIS details at any time, to create and to alter Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
