Your question was: Park Domain Name on godaddy.com?.
Well, I would go ahead & buy the .net & the .tv..
I think in the case of geos there is not a clear 'second best' - but then again I don't think there is in any sector - unless you can use a prefix/suffix to create a well known phrase, but these are often TMd - maybe try foreign language spellings or other tlds/cctlds.
I think I have francevacance.something somewhere .. which is OK , certainly for french natives/francophiles.
Try doing some wide tld scans at dynadot to see what 'other' people have regged. (i think you will find all the e- i- visit- etc versions long gone)...
Be sure to check for TM's sometimes these types of terms have been officially registered...
If I didn't find the one generic name I wanted I would search for the shortest next available name at .com.
All travel,visit prefixes/suffixes they are targeted for travel/hotel industry so I don't think they're so generic.
If you have something in mind for the development of this/these names maybe it wouldn't be so bad to target specific niches too..
1) VisitFrance - by a looong shot.
Many official Tourism boards use "visit" - VisitFlorida.com sold for $186,000 in 2004.
I think the large majority of country.info domains are held back by Afilias/ICANN - one or 2 escaped , such as spain.info (in active use) - presumably for a big future $ale .. rant snipped ..

VisitFrance.tv every day of the week - except I wouldn't visit France I would VisitIndia -I like the .tv it makes me think of moving pictures - .com makes me think of dusty old books..
France.com in FRENCH, then France.FR, then France.fr in french, then France.com.fr..
I just want to check we're not in the TV section!!!.
I'm with France.TV (after checking France.fr has gone).
Without a doubt...
Great name for penis enlargement programs not for generic of France..
Hahaha. I want to say that he can reg a common expresion from the country. For example:.
France.info (if I had domainer head on and was thinking about most valuable and resale, France.net or VisitFrance.com) , but France.info is so perfect, it's why I love .info for Geo..
I understood that jorgemar.
It sounded better for that purpose..
Just a small point GodSavetheQueen is not a common expression in the UK - it is an official expression at public functions which mercifully are few and far between. Many people in the UK would like to see the back of the Queen and all who sail in her.
To get back on topic -.
If you had the choice between VisitFrance.net and VisitFrance.tv which would you choose ? I like .tvs but logic tells me that .net is still more popular...
Given all the good variants, suffixes, prefixes, exts, etc... listed, a quick scan shows that there are plenty of names for someone to register today the start of a geo-empire of similar domains... not that I have any plans.
The other day I registered GoCaymans,com... maybe someday I'll go there and take my portfolio with me , or maybe just go for a week's vacation either way, I love 'em and can't stop registering ones that stick out.....
I would definitely go for:.
