Top tips on choosing the right domain name

Your domain name is your address on the internet. It’s how people find you when they search Google and also what you use as part of your brand and communications.

The extension part of your domain is also important.  In Australia it’s a good idea to choose .com.au as your extension as this identifies you immediately as an Australian company or business. There are rules however on who can register a .com.au, the main one being you must have an ABN.  Click here for more information on this.

Don’t forget that you can also use your new domain name as your email address.  An example would be yourname@yourbusiness.com.au. This always looks more professional than a free email account like hotmail or gmail.

Choosing a name that is short can be helpful when printing your web address and emails on things like business cards. However a longer domain name can help with search engine optimisation. A good tip is register two domain names, one as an acronym and the other as the full name of your business or product. You can interchange the two domains when it best suits you. Both domains will work as one.

If the domain name you want is already taken why not look at some of the newer domain extensions available? .biz or .co are great alternatives.
