2013 Edition - French Domain Industry Report

This month’s issue of the Afnic Domain Name Industry Report highlights the French market potential for generic top-level domain names (gTLDs). Focusing on the most important gTLDs, i.e. those with more than one million domain names in their portfolio – .com.net, .org, .info, .biz and .mobithe Report reveals that:

  • The rate of growth for gTLDs on the French market in 2013 is one and a half times greater than that recorded on the world market for the same gTLDs,
  • The rates of growth for the .com.net, .org, .info and .biz gTLDs, although higher than their performance elsewhere in the world, are generally short-term or one-off, related to specific events or operations;
  • the presence of .com on the French market does not preclude the other gTLDs from impacting users often more effectively than in the rest of the world;
  • gTLDs targeting specific audiences, such as .mobi, consistently have better results on the French market than elsewhere in the world.
