Why choose a .tf domain?
As domain extensions go, .tf is pretty unique. It’s the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the French Southern and Antarctic Lands. But since Antarctica isn’t exactly densely populated, it’s most often used for other purposes. In fact, .tf is commonly used by sites related to Team Fortress 2, a popular multiplayer video game. But there’s no reason to limit yourself. Whatever the letters 'tf' mean to you, this could be the perfect choice.
.tf facts, stats & history
Although .tf is a ccTLD, you don’t need to live in this remote French territory to use it. However, you do need to be based in the European Union. .tf has many possible uses, well beyond Antarctica and Team Fortress 2. On the other hand, if you’re trying to target French military personnel, scientists, and researchers stationed in Antarctica with your website, then .tf is hands-down the best domain extension for you.
