Why register Australian domain names ?

If you want to market your business or organisation to Australians, then buying an Australian domain name, ideally a .com.au or .net.au domain name is a the right choice. Many businesses use a .com.au because it is easier for people to remember. They also choose to register both a .com and .com.au , so that people who inadvertently forget to type the .au will be redirected automatically to the correct website. The other benefit of an Australian domain name is that your website will be included in the Australian search results for Google, Yahoo, Bing and MSN and other search engines.


 

Registering Multiple domains


If you are registering a Australian domain name, it is also a good idea to register the corresponding .com or .net domain. If you don't register the corresponding .com domain name, someone else may and this may be one of your competitors, who can use the domain name to direct traffic to their website. Don't think that it won't happen to your business. Many businesses have found that the .com version of their domain name has been bought by one of their competitors. Sure, you can take legal action but you may not win and hiring a lawyer is not cheap.

.com and .net domains are bought on a first come basis, and it is much easier to protect your trademark and company name by buying the .com and .net domain name than to buy them later from another party.
