If you wish to acquire a dot FR domain, you can do it through our firm and it will be operational more or less instantaneously. AFNIC, the Registry organization that controls this TLD, has special requirements about certain records that the name servers of a dot FR domain must have, and we meet these requirements, so you will not have any difficulties to get your site up and running in a matter of minutes. Many hosting companies, especially 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 tool – you’ll be able to modify the WHOIS information at any time, to create and to update Custom DNS records, to park domains, etc.
