Domain registration is the first step towards building your website.
Your domain name is: www.yourname.com.au. Kimberley Web Design strongly recommends the purchase of both the .com and the .com.au to protect your branding.
Recently one of our clients had only purchased the .com for their business. Upon our recommendation to buy the .com.au, it was discovered that their competitors had bought it, thereby potentially losing half their market.
For the small cost of domain names, this practice of purchasing both, makes good business sense.
If your business is mainly dealing with an Australian Market, then we recommend that you purchase the .com.au as your primary domain.
Domain Names should be short, both for your potential users and yourself.
It is best practice to purchase your email with your hosting, so if you have a very long domain name such as www.kimberleywebdesignwebsiteservices.com.au, your email will end up being something like .. firstname.lastname@example.org, which takes some time to type and also allows for typing errors.
Once you have decided on a domain name, check whether the domain name is available and then proceed to our secure checkout to purchase them. Upon completion of domain name registration, the domain name becomes yours for the period of the contract, usually one year for the .com and two years for the .com.au.
Prices for domain names vary significantly with Domain Registrars, but we have done the hard work for you and researched the best value for money.
