Why would you use location based domain names?

There are many reasons why someone should use a location based domain name. This is an example of use from a small business in Aurstralia.

According to Jean Guillon:
Country code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs such as ".fr" for France or "us" for the United States) will remain for sure. I personnaly find that they go straight to the point when it comes to informing about the country location of a company. On the other hand, location based domain names such as ".paris" or ".london" offer more precision.

Extract from the article:
"Fung, who is the company’s state manager, says the kungfu.sydney domain name has given him an edge over his competitors because the location of his businesses is built into the domain name itself".
