Should I register a .com.au, .net.au or .com Domain name?

I am an Australian business owner, should I register a .com.au, .net.au or .com Domain name?

A .com.au name is certainly the flagship of Australian Domain Names. It is well recognised by Australian consumers, who instantly identify that companies bearing the .com.au suffix are Australian Companies and have passed the eligibility to hold a com.au Domain Name.

Registering .net.au name can certainly help with your marketing efforts. It can also be an excellent choice if the .com.au or .com name you want is registered by another company.

The .com suffix is certainly one of the most recognised suffixes in the world. If your business wants to trade and compete on a world scale then a .com name will help brand you as an international organisation.

Many businesses choose to register all three (com.au, net.au and .com) to protect their trademark or to assist in their on-line and off-line marketing efforts.

If for example you owned www.mywebsite.com, www.mywebsite.net.au but the main website you have is www.mywebsite.com.au. Users could find your web site at all three of these addresses.
