Firstly, what is a domain?
Not all of us are fortunate enough to have learnt about computing at school, so here are some basics for the non-geek. A domain is the unique name that points to your website, for example babelscribe.com points to our website. Well, it's basically just techie-speak for your own unique web address or URL. (Unique Resource Location)
People putting your domain name in the address bar of search engine are immediately directed towards your website. It is unique to you like a limited business name, and ideally should include key words that are important to your business. eg nztradenetwork.co.nz. Sometimes it is a good idea to include your locality.eg pictonmarlborough.co.nz
Does the domain you are thinking exist?
Ask us and we'll search for you...
We can purchase your domain for you, which costs $44.95 plus GST and is an annual fee, which includes:securing your name; administration; renewals, and unlimited email addresses;
you can choose to register your chosen domain yourself, in which case you are responsible for admin and renewals etc.
To buy a .co.nz or. com?
A domain with.co.nz will instantly base you in New Zealand, a .com is more global. It is a good idea to cover your bases and secure both, ensuring that your competition don't buy your domain. It does happen!
