Register The Right Domain For A Business

At SEO Noosa, we know that one of the most important foundations of building a successful business online is about knowing where and how to register the right domain for a business.

How do I secure my web property?

It is critically important for us as business owners that we secure all of our web property.

This means we should be securing domain names of…

  • Our business name(s)
  • Our product or service names
  • Our own name .com (if possible)

We’re often asked:

Do I need to register the .com and the .com.au? Do I need to register .org .tv .net etc. ?

It really depends on your business intentions – for example, if you intend providing a fair amount of video content in future, it may be a good idea to secure the .tv domain.

And if you are looking to tie your business in with some kind of cause or charity, it may be a good idea to secure a .org domain.

Is it necessary to buy the .net?

Well, if it’s your brand, or business name, and you’d like to ‘own’ as much of the online real estate as possible pertaining to your brands and names, then yes purchase the .net domains.

Which is the best domain for business?

The one(s) you actually use are of course up to you but here are the important ones to secure…

1. Your Name .com

2. Your Name (dot domain extension of the country you live in/run business from)

3. Your Business Name .com

4. Your Business Name (dot domain extension of the country you live in/run business from)

Note that even if you operate in one country, or you are a local business, there is a global marketing opportunity that exists on the web. And although you may not understand the full scope of that business opportunity right now, or have plans fleshed out as to how you would monetize such a business, it can sometimes be a good idea to secure the .com of your name or business while it is available.

5. Your Brand Name .com

6. Your Brand Name (dot domain extension of the country you live in/run business from)

There are other factors and strategies to consider in choosing the right domain name for business but securing your web property using the guide above will at minimum ensure no one can take your names and brands domain-wise.
