- Which language(s) are you going to use on your site?
- Are you targeting only people in France or worldwide?
Generally, I would use the .fr tld for a site in French, .net or .com for a site in English.
If you use both French and English on your site, I would use the .fr tld for the French part and .net or .com for the English part.
As you certainly know, all major international companies use a .fr tld to promote their products/services in France.

Hi tombola - thanks for your reply.
The site will be mainly geared toward french people - I will possibly have the one for the worldwide market market as well but first it's going to be french only.
What is more popular with french people - let say I do some advertising - if they only remember the domain name and not the tld will they type .fr or .com.
If the .com is typed more often I might as well try and find a new domain name - although I REALLY like the ones (.net & .fr) I have at the moment.

If its for the French market .fr definitely.
.Net I'm not to crazy about. Its like a poor man's .com.

.fr is the one you should go for.

If I am from a country other than france and came across two websites .fr and .net in serps, then I will click on .net website.
