    How much does it cost to get a domain name? Is it better to get .com.au?

    How do you go about it?
    ...maybe, but then again "maybe" covers a lot of things, like: maybe Michael Jackson really is LaToya in drag, or maybe if Dorothy clicks her heels 3 times and says "There's no place like home" while she is at home, she would telefrag herself..." - MadMikeAU

    I think .au's are higher in price than just normal .com's. (can anyone confirm?)
    BEEP BEEP Richie! They ALL float down here. When your down here with us, you'll float too!

      .com.au is more pricey. also you need to have an ABN to register for one (supposeldy). Check out:
      http://www.planetdomain.com.au to get an idea. I use http://www.godaddy.com/ for my .com domain as I found them to be regarded as one of the best all round for price and service in my investigations (not the best service, not the best price, but excellent all round and have a HUUUUUGE global subscription).

      To have a .com.au or .net.au you need to have an ABN. To have a .org.au you need to be a registered 'not for profit' organisation. To have a .info.au i think it has to be your own name. check the regulations on that though. Australia has a seperate body to govern anything with a .au

      A .com, .net etc. however can be had by anybody hence it's harder to find what you want but much cheaper.

        also use godaddy for my .com domain ... had no issues thus far with them $8 or so US for a .com domain works for me

        use melbit for my .com.au domain .. expensive $100+ for 2yrs ..., but i'll be letting that lapse next time as the business is closed down now.

          I tried godaddy and a bunch of others, ALL required a credit card (which I dont have). GoDaddy accepts paypal but only from paypal account with credit cards...argggghh

          Anyway, I came across this lot www.gem3.com that accept paypal with out credit card. Quite resonable as well, $9 a year for a .com.

            I paid $66 dollars for our domain here, got it for 2 years.

            Pretty sweet deal I think. They are cracking down on the .com.au domains. From my understanding you need a ABN and be trading as that name eg

            ABN xxxxxxxxx
            Trading as : Billy Bods Arcade
            billybobsarcade.com.au

            So you can just put down any ABN number you want. They sent our mail just recently saying they will be doing checks.

            cheers

              If you want to be more searchable on the web ".com.au" would probably be the better option to use.

              Im not totally sure on this, but i believe that if a user on google who tries refining their seach critera by clicking on "Australia only search" , (which alot of people do ) then you will probably have a better chance of coming up in the results page...

                I changed my mind about the content of the site (for now at least) so using my ABN, etc was no longer necessary as it will be a hobby site.
