Redefining your digital world
  Domain name registration    

Choosing your domain name:
To have an online presence you need to choose a domain name, or website address. This is normally your company name, or a common word or phrase associated with your business. If you choose something other than your business name it should be easy to remember, short, easy to spell and preferably unhyphenated.

Examples of good domain names are:
webdesign.com, cocacola.com, adidas.com, nzhotels.co.nz, runningshoes.com, campsite.co.nz, and carsales.co.nz.

Bad examples are:
• webdesigneraucklandcity.co.nz - while directly associated it is too long and may be hard to remember

• coca-cola.co.nz - not everyone will remember the hyphen

• adidasshoez.com - incorrect or unique spellings can be hard to remember unless it is easily associated with your business or brand i.e quiksilver.com

• and worst of all is when they are combined together: website-designerz-4-you.com

Registering your chosen domain name:
Once you've decided on your domain name, you need to check whether it is still available. With the large number of domain providers now available you should be able to find your chosen domain name using either .co.nz, .com, .net, .org, .info, or .biz. These are called the TLD's - there are many more TLD's to choose from, however it is often best to stick with either .com or .co.nz as these are the most common.
Using your local TLD .co.nz is best for local businesses so that customers will instantly recognise you as a New Zealand based company. If you are going for an international audience, .com may be prefered.

Domain regsistrations fees are paid yearly and range in price depending on the reseller and TLD chosen. If you are prepared to do a bit of research online you can compare and find the best deals yourself.

If you prefer me to take the hardwork out of it for you, I have already searched the internet and got together the best deals I could find. I can research your domain name and register it for you and offer the following prices:

.co.nz - $40/year
.com / .net / .org - $40/year
.info / .biz - $40/year

Please note that these prices can fluctuate so are subject to change without notice. Please contact me for an accurate costing.
