Your Own Domain Name
Having your own domain name can help your customers recognise and find your website easier. It is your online business address, uniquely identifying you on the Internet.
It supports your brand and helps promote your business, and your domain name can be included on business cards, brochures, billboards, and other promotional material. People will remember your name more easily and will help with searching when the domain name is the same as your business name.
Australian Domain Names
Australians are more comfortable dealing with a local company and an Australian domain name helps identify you as an Australian business. Getting an .au domain name lets your customers know you’re a legitimate Australian business.
Released in March 2022, .au Direct is general purpose available for anyone with an Australian connection of some sort. It can be used for an online presence of individuals, organisations, or anything else as long as it is a verifiable connection to Australia.
The most familiarly known Australian domain name, .com.au is for commercial entities such as companies and businesses. An ABN or ACN is typically needed to verify eligibility. For businesses in Australia, .com.au is generally the first choice for use.
