Domain Registration


Having your domain name is the first step to setting up your web site.  If you are unfamiliar with what a domain name is here is a simple explanation.  Most businesses have a business name or they may be a sole trader.  Domain names are much the same in that a name is chosen and it can have an extension such as dot-com.  The domain name for this site is www.skilledinternetmarketing.com.au -  the www stands for world wide web; skilledinternetmarketing is the domain name; the com means it is a commercial business and the au tells us that it is an Australian site.  There are different extensions beside .com such as org, net, info, biz etc., however the most common is .com.

Owning a company name does not mean you will automatically be able to purchase the same domain name for the company as it may already have been purchased.  Therefore it is a good idea to purchase your domain name preferably at the same time as you set up your company or as soon as possible.  At Skilled Internet Marketing we will assist you in guiding you through the process of purchasing your domain name.  Check the form below to see if your name is available.  Buying an Australia domain name requires some additional information however if you are doing business mainly in Australia you may like to consider purchasing one.  Complete the information on the contact form and one of our friendly staff will be in contact with you to answer any of your queries.
