How do I register my domain name?

Register Domain Name

To get your domain name, the first thing to do is to find the domain extension that is suited to you. Domain extensions can be global (i.e., .com, .org), country specific (i.e., .au, .us) or generic (i.e., .cafe, .blog). It is seen best to combine global or generic extensions with the country extension to find better audiences for your website.

For Australia, the extension is ‘.au’. You can also go for ‘.melbourne’, ‘.sydney’  and other newer available options. Refer to our TLD’s directory to know more about domain name extensions.

Enter your preferred domain name at the search bar to get the best suggestions from us for your website. Now that you have chosen the extension you can choose your domain name.

Your domain name should preferably be related to what you are selling or what you do. This will make it easier for people to find you. If you have a business named ‘My Bakery’, you should probably choose a domain name like, mybakery.com.au, mb.com.au, bakerymy.com.au, mybakerystreet11.com.au or similar.

After choosing the domain name that you want, search for its availability. If not available, backorder the domain name or go for another combination. You can also do the Whois Domain lookup to see whether the domain name you want will be available at any time soon.

A domain name is your physical address on the internet and you would want to make sure it is easy to remember and is recognized with your brand. Register your domain name in 2 simple steps.
