Domain Name Registration

You're Domain Name

Choosing the right domain name is essential to your online branding and marketing. Having a domain name that is easy to remember and represents your brand is imperative to ensure people find you on the web. Your domain name is one way for people to identify you and differentiate you from your competitors.

People find websites many different ways but most often they will:

  1. Have seen your URL advertised somewhere; your business card, flyers etc.,
  2. Searched on a search engine and seen your site listed, or
  3. Guessed your URL based on your company name.

You will have noticed that there are a variety of domain names available. .com, .net and .org are example of top-level domain names. There are also country level domain names like .com.au. or .co.uk.

A top-level domain name is increasingly hard to secure so you may have difficulty registering your business name with .com as the domain. In Australia, if you are registering a .com.au name, regulation has ensured that your domain name must be derived from your business name or represent a service you offer making it easier for you to register a name that accurately represents your business. However these rules are a little more flexible now. Also a business ABN is required for the registration of .com.au domain names.

You can find out if your chosen domain name is still available here:
