Why is it important?
A domain name is important because it forms your business identity on the internet, it works like your company name or brand. People should recognize it as part of your company. In Australia, domain name registration requires the number from your Certificate of Business Registration, Australian Business Number or Australian Company Number to purchase a .com.au address. A URL is shourt for Universal Resource Locator.
Your domain name must be related to your business name, or a product which you offer. A domain name cannot contain another business’ trademark. You can search the IP Australia site to check if your proposed business name or domain name infringes on another businesses trademark. To visit the IP Australia web site, click here. We at A7Designs believe that your .com or .com.au address should be something that your customers will recognize on the Internet, and it should be consistent with the business that you are displaying on the web.
Dot Com (.com) or Dot Com Dot Au (.com.au)?
What do you need? Dot com/net names are cheaper than .com.au names. Before you do, you may want to consider what is available (many .com addresses are taken). Some Australian Search Engines may not list a .com address, and some international search engines may not list a .com.au address.You can purchase a .com.au name from us.
Use the field at the top of the page to find out if the business name is available for you. Perhaps you want to purchase both a .com and a .com.au address (protecting your business name from some one else). Remember if you purchase a .com.au name, and another company purchases the .com address, they may be a competitor or a sex site.
If your purchase both, we can ensure both domain addresses lead the customer to your website.
