Choosing The Right Domain Name


Choosing a business name is very important and can often take quite a few suggestions until you find the right one. I spent a long time trying to come up with my own business name. ‘Gross Websites’ really wouldn’t have portaited the professionalism that I was hoping for! Wonderful Websites just seemed to fit and it was wonderful to find that the domain name was available. Here are a couple of reasons why you should spend some time doing a little research on your domain name:

  • Make sure it is easy to spell
  • Your domain name should accurately reflect your registered business name
  • However, you domain name does not have to be exactly the same as your registered business name
  • You must be a registered business (i.e have an ABN) to use a .com or domain name
  • You must be an incorporated organisation to have a domain name
  • Only official educational bodies can use .edu domain names
  • If your business is location based (e.g. servicing a specified area), you should use
  • If you are hoping to reach customers internationally, look for a domain name that you can register both and .com
  • Domain names with are more likely to be found in Search Engines in Australia
  • You can have a number of domain names which can be automatically directed to the one website – this will also help with being found
