Options and Costs

You can choose to just have a web brochure, or have a web brochure plus professional business email addresses with @yourbusiness.com.au in your addresses, or you can even choose to just have the email addresses and no website if you like. When considering what to do about email addresses, this information will be helpful.

Registering your own Internet address - your "Domain Name"


I'd highly recommend that you use your own business name in your Internet address, like www.yourbusiness.com.au - assuming of course your preferred name is still available. It provides maximum business credibility on the Internet and so is a very worthwhile expense for every business, large or small.

It's best to get your business's domain name as soon as you can. Domain name registrations are on a "first come, first served" basis. Names can't be reserved so why not register yours now so that no other business can. It's a very reasonable cost for securing your place on the Internet for the future of your business. (By the way, I'm not on a commission for domain name registrations - I'm just a firm believer that every business should claim its right to use their preferred name on the Internet before anyone else can get it.)

There's a little work involved in registering your own domain name, but not much. Let me help you with this whole process to make sure it works properly. If you use the wrong registrar it could cost you much more than necessary.

Once you've registered your domain name you'll also be able to set up an unlimited number of professional looking email addresses for your business whenever you want to.

To register your own name is a separate process, performed through an accredited Domain Name Registrar. Prices to register .com.au "domain names" vary significantly depending on the registrar you choose. A "com.au" domain name registration can cost as low as $30 for two years registration, but I've seen prices as high as $225 for two years!

Be aware though that the lowest price is not always the best option. There are some traps. I'll help you so you get the best value for money I can find, including the features you need to make this work with your web brochure.
