What is a domain?
An example of a domain name is samswebsites.com.au or google.com.au.
Once you've registered your business name on ASIC it's a great idea to secure your domain name so poachers cannot buy it and sell it back to you for a premium price.
Do I need a domain?
Ultimately, YES. Domain names provide your business with an 'address' on the Internet, both establishing and protecting your brand online.
This also enables you to create domain specific email accounts, rather than an @gmail or @ bigpond email. Domain specific emails project a professional look for your business.
Registering a domain
Sam's Websites can purchase, register, connect and manage your domain name or you can do it yourself at www.samsdomains.com.au.
Alternatively, a simple search for 'domain name registration' will list other domains hosts that you can purchase and setup your domain with.
