Choosing the right domain name

Most people these days are aware that a domain name is the www.yourwebsiteaddress.com component, but when it comes to choosing one, confusion reigns.

The best way to go about it is to choose a name that closely matches your organisation's name. People will often guess what a domain for a particular business may be, based on their knowledge of the company, so if you stick to that philosophy, you're off to a good start.

The next thing is to choose the appropriate extension. If you are an Australian business, it makes perfect sense to use a .au extension, telling people where you are in the world. However, it may be that you want to sell to a worldwide market and disguise your location, in which case a .com may be more appropriate. And of course there's nothing to stop you registering both a .com and a .com.au


We don't do discount domains. We provide domain names at reasonable, competitive prices and support our customers over the phone. Our prices match many other major domain registration services and we offer discounts for multiple registrations and renewals and long term registrations. For example, .com.au domains sell for $99.00. Visit our Domain Registration Page and click on the Pricing link for more details.

Transfer to Eastcoast IT

If you already have a domain name, you can transfer it to our Domain Management Service. This makes a lot of sense if your website is being hosted and built by Eastcoast IT, because we can look after the lot for you.

Many people fall into the trap of buying a domain from an overseas company at a bargain basement price, only to discover when the time comes to modify contact details, move your website, or any number of processes that require domain management, the company no longer exists. Or there is a charge for the most basic of changes and the company is simply not contactable by phone. Thus ensues a lengthy bureaucratic pursuit in which you need to employ someone like Eastcoast IT!
