Domain Registration

Domain Registration

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 and Emails

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 .. enquiries@kimberleywebdesignwebsiteservices.com.au, 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.

Domain Registration FAQ

What is the difference between a .com.au and .net.au Domain Name?

There is very little difference between the .com.au and the .net.au.
The .net.au was previously used for information technology type services but many businesses choose the .net.au, if the Domain Name they are after, is not available with the .com.au.
It is for this reason, that purchasing the .net.au domain, will protect your branding and stop a competitor setting up the same business using the .net.au.

 

Should I use my Business Name as my Domain Name?

Kimberley Web Design recommends using your business name as your Domain Name as this greatly assists with Search Engine Optimisation.

 

Are Domain Names case sensitive?

Domain Names are NOT cAsE sEnSiTiVe – so abc.com is the same as ABC.com.

 

What characters are allowed in a Domain Name?

The only characters allowed are letters, digits and a hyphen (-).
Spaces are not allowed.
The name should be between 3 and 63 characters long. www. is not actually part of the domain name.

 

What makes a good Domain Name?

A good Domain Name is vital for a business. If the name does not match your business name or slogan, then it must be closely related to one or both.
Your Domain Name must also be easy to remember so that customers do not have to work hard to find your site online.

 

How long does my Domain Registration last?

Once Domain Name Registration is complete, the Domain Name becomes yours for the period of the contract, usually one year for the .com and two years for the .com.au.
Before registration expires, you must renew it, or the domain reverts to being available, to the general public.
