Domain Questions…

A Domain Name is is simply ‘a name‘. As humans we like to communicate with words, whilst computers like to communicate with numbers. So Domain Names became the way for us humans to find each other on the internet.

Domain Names play an essential part of communicating and finding businesses and people on the Internet. Its much like the ‘physical address‘ of your business or home, without it your friends wouldn’t know where to come and visit you.

A Domain Name also allows people to contact you via Email, eg: fred@mybusiness.com.au.

Having a Domain Name is also a professional way to display your business online, and email address like my-super-business@gmail.com doesn’t carry the professionalism like david@mysuperbusiness.com.au

When choosing a domain name, you should consider your geographical area that your business and industry is targeting.

In Australia, the .com.au and .net.au domain names are typically targeted for use. As you’d expect, people then know that you are in Australia and/or targeting the Australian market. People also buy the .com domain to be seen more global and to ensure their business is seen more widely.

Also try and keep your domain name short, so that its easily readable, writable and searchable for people to find you. for example; mysuperawesomebusiness.com.au takes a while to write and people can make mistakes writing it, whereas msab.com.au is easier.

Simply search for a domain name in the form at the top of our site to see what Domain Names are ‘taken‘ or ‘available‘.

The ‘au Domain Administration‘ (auDA) have regulations for who can register an Australian Domain.

The .com.au or .net.au domains can only be registered to Australian sole traders, businesses or companies. You will need to provide either an ABN, ACN, State Business Number, Trademark Number or Incorporated Association Number when going through the registration process.

Only Australian non-profit organisations and registered charities can register a .org.au domain.

Australian associations, clubs, sporting groups, political parties and close equivalents may register a .asn.au domain names, however associations must be nonprofit.
