To create your website, you need to register a domain name.
If you are having your web design created by us we will be able to personally advise you of your options and best way to deploy them.
We will also look after the entire process of buying and registering them in your name and changing the relative settings etc.
However, if you are just looking to buy domain names we recommend theses domain registrars.

Buying domain names
It makes sense to not only secure the .com domain of our choice, but also your countries domain too.
For example if you are in;
Australia – .com / .com.au /net.au
United Kingdom – .com/ .co.uk
United States – .com / .us
Multiple domains can be set to point to your website providing an opportunity of more traffic.
Domain name – what it is and why you need it?
A domain name is a unique word, or a couple of words, associated with an IP address, that represents a special place on the Internet.
You need a domain name to identify your place on the World Wide Web. Many web hosts offer domain name registration as an added service.
This is a great opportunity to buy and store your domains in the one control panel saving you the hassle of multiple accounts.
While some hosts may not be quite as cheap as a dedicated domain registrar, when you way up the huge advantage of keeping your domains and website[s] together safely within the one control panel, the time saving alone outweighs any small cost variance.
Also make sure your domain registrar allows full management access to your domain in the registration fee. That is, access to your Name Server, Domain Forwarding, Parking, and Redirection etc.
Some domain registrars advertise very cheap registration fees only to find out later that you have to pay for full management access, which they regard as an extra.
Many hosts now offer what is called ‘Multi-domain’ web hosting where you can host more than one domain/website on the one plan.
You may only intend to host one website at this point, but it can be a great advantage to have the future option should the need arise, to host more, at no extra cost.
It means you can host your business website and still host a family or personal interest website as well.
