The .com.au extension is the country code second-level domain for Australia. The extension belongs to the ccTLD .au and was introduced in 1986. The domain is very popular in Australia with an estimated 3.2 million domains registered. The common use of the domain includes individual use, such as portfolios, blogs, journals, and project websites, as well as commercial entities, such as major industries, as well as organizations in Australia.
You should register a .com.au domain if you are a business or individual operating a website in Australia or targeting an Australian locale. The domain extension is the equivalent of the US’ .com and is immensely popular with Australians. Because of the wide use of the domain, Aussies trust companies and websites using the extension to feature content and information focused on Australia, which really helps your search engine rankings.
Every Aussie business looking to be discovered online needs a .com.au domain! The domain is perfect due to its wide recognition and the extension inspires trust in fellow Aussies. The domain extension is also perfect for individual use and can be used for anything really. There’s no restrictions when it comes to how you can use the domain, the sky's the limit, or in the case of Australia, the beautiful beaches and coastline are the limits. The .com.au extension is ranked the same as any other domain extension, even .com, .net, and .org, giving you just as much chance to make it to the top of Google as anyone else.
Don’t get complicated. An easy-to-remember domain is always best.
Stay true to your brand. Be distinct but choose a domain your audience will recognize.
Don’t wait until it’s too late. That perfect domain could be gone by tomorrow if you don’t grab it now.
Just because the internet is high-tech doesn’t mean your domain name should be.
Grab similar domain names to protect your brand: .net, .org, .co, or even .photo.
If you are purchasing a .com.au domain for the purpose of business & trade, you will need to register for and provide your ABN number, or alternatively your trade mark number, state business number, or incorporated association number. If you are launching your website for non-commercial purposes or personal use, such as a blog or portfolio, then you do not need an ABN to register the domain.
The .com domain is commonly associated with major companies in the United States, like Google and Facebook. The .com.au domain extension on the other hand is associated with websites and companies in Australia. If you are an Aussie business or an Aussie running your own website and you’re targeting other Aussies with your products or content, you’ll definitely want to register a .com.au domain to get the most out of your content. This will help you with search engine rankings as well.
