The Dot FR ccTLD is the most widespread one amongst French speakers and if you possess a website in French, such a domain name will be an ideal choice to contact tens of millions of WWW users, taking into account that a .FR domain is more likely to have higher French search engine standings. This doesn’t include only France, but also countries with large French-speaking communities, such as Canada, Switzerland, Belgium and numerous countries in Northern and Central Africa. People from all these countries usually use French electronic mail providers and search online for French websites, so this is an excellent way for you to reach them.
The top-level domain was created in 1986, but registrations were limited to individuals and businesses based 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 over 2,500,000 active domains, the .FR top-level extension is amongst the most widely used country-specific domains. And this number has increased with a whole million over the past couple of years.

Many hosting companies, above all resellers, don’t offer the full set of records, so you can’t really host a dot FR domain with them.
