Choose a domain name

Your domain name ends with an extension. There are many types of extension you can choose from, depending on your needs.

- Generic extensions: the most common extensions, generally used for an international business. E.g. .com, .net, .org, .info, etc.
- Local extensions: target a specific geographical zone, country, or region. E.g. .eu, .fr, .bzh, .paris, etc.
- Thematic extensions: adapted to suit your business, sector or community. E.g. .football, .shop, .family, etc.

Our advice

When you reserve a domain name, we recommend checking the reservation and renewal prices for your extension, so that you can calculate a total cost for the lifespan of your web project.

We also recommend ensuring that essential services, such as theft protection, are offered by the domain name registry.
