American start-up businesses generally use LLC these days, many French-speaking European businesses use the French SARL when they register for the first time. Now you can have it as your website address. Your .SARL domain will make you instantly recognizable as a société à responsabilité limitée — the French equivalent of a limited liability company, generally used in a French-speaking locales. Using .SARL gives your business a memorable online identity linked to your location. It also says something about you as a business.
“SARL” stands for Société à responsabilité limitée and is the French-language version of LLP, or limited liability partnership (like an LLC in America). The .SARL is designed for the French business world – the term is widely used in France, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Monaco, Macao, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Madagascar, and Lebanon. Registering your .SARL domain name will give you a trusted, strong, and marketable website to connect you to customers and business partners alike all over the Francophone world. You can easily set up a .SARL email address or create a .SARL website using our site builder.fms.sarl/

The term ‘generic Top-Level Domains’ (gTLDs) describes long-established domains such as .COM, .NET, .ORG, and .BIZ, as well as hundreds of ‘new gTLDs’ which have appeared in recent years, such as .BLOG, .IRISH, .DESIGN or .ROCKS.
These types of domains are called ‘generic’ to distinguish them from ‘country-code TLDs’ (ccTLDs) such as .IE or .FR.
The main benefit to choosing a new gTLD (generic Top-Level Domain) such as .BLOG, is availability. The older long-established domains like .COM have millions of registered domain names, and it can be difficult to find a memorable, meaningful name which has not already been registered by someone else. The new gTLDs have opened up hundreds of new namespaces, with new opportunities for great domain names.
The second benefit of new gTLDs is that many of the new domain extensions are valuable keywords in their own right, and not merely a redundant suffix. A new gTLD is a more efficient. Compare BlueSuedeShoes.com with BlueSuede.shoes.
Yes, Google and other search engines rank new gTLDs the same way as the ‘old’ gTLDs.
The general rule is to make sure it’s relevant to the business, service or information you’re providing. So if you’re selling shoes, something like yourcompany.shoes would be a good start.
The question of whether to migrate an established website to a new domain is one that requires careful consideration and planning. If your website is established and you’ve put a lot of effort in promoting your current domain name then we would not advise you to suddenly switch your website to a new domain, irrespective of the TLD. You could start by simply redirecting the new TLD to your current domain name and move to the new TLD once a proper migration plan is in place.
