Title: international website : use my domain name .fr or my .info ?
Post by: zetrader on 05-25-2016, 00:22:52
Hello i have 2 domain names zetrader.fr and zetrader.info, zetrader is my nickname in general on the net.
Now i'm in Spain, until now my website was only in french, but i'm thinking writing it also in 2 languages more : spanish and english.
I'm hesitating how to do it :
1)
domain.fr for french (and domain.info redirect on domain.fr)
es.domain.fr  for spanish (i've seen france.fr doing that for spanish version and when i look for francia in google it's in the first results)
en.domaine.fr for english
I know it's not usual and .fr usually stands for french, but i see 2 advantages :
a) url shorter than .info
b) start with my domain name that got more backlinks and more "authority"

2)
domain.info for french (domain.fr redirects to .info)
domaine.info/es or es.domaine.info for spanish
domaine.info/en ou en.domaine.info for english

Advantages (supposition) :
a) the .info looks more international
b) only one domain name for the people, easy to remember

Disadvantages (supposition) :
a) i've read sometimes that .info domains have bad reputation, some say that it ranks worst than .fr ou .com, is it only rumors or things from the past, nowadays is it bas to have a .info as main domain ?
b) url a little longer (.info vs .fr)

What would be the best choice in your opinion ? All with .info ou all with .fr ?
Thanks for your advices,

Pierre
