If you do nothing else, a domain name is the first and most important step . There are a variety of domains to choose from. The most common are either .com or .com.au. These relate to commercial enterprises, and should be as short as possible so that your customers can remember it! If your customers are most likely Australian, a .com.au is the way to go.
The .com.au domain is very important to signify an Australian business (with an ABN) or brand which is registered in Australia, and bound by Australian laws. This gives your website credibility, which is very important on the world wide web. It also gives your Internet visitors a sense that you are “local”, and “type-in traffic” will always use the .com.au extension first. If you have a global business, a .com is essential. There are absolutely no restrictions in registering a .com domain name. Other popular domains are .net.au, which signifies an Internet business. We have a whole range of different domain names available from only $14.98 per year. Please note that if you have a registered Australian business with an ABN number, this does not entitle you to the same domain name, you must secure first.
