Often people don’t realise the steps involved in starting a website. But the first and most important thing is to secure your domain name ie your www.websitename.com.au
When selecting a domain, particularly for an Australian website, go for .com.au not just .com as you’ll find that if someone is wanting an Aussie company, they will go for sites with the .com.au suffix. That being said, to register a .com.au domain you will need an ABN.
Choose something that isn’t too long, as you want people to be able to remember it! You can search to see if your domain is available via the link below.
Domains cost around $45 for 2 years, prices can vary according to who you buy from. I recommend you buy from a reputable domain registrar as all too often resellers close down, move your domain around, and you get left in the lurch wondering where your domain is registered when you need to make updates.
All of my website packages include your domain name registration, or you can bring one with you!
