Domain Name Registration
What is a domain name?
A domain name is an address that people use on the internet, whether for websites or for email. It's a string of characters which usually spells out a word, a company name or person's name.
These days, buying domain names is almost as common as buying a DVD or computer game. You can pick up your very own .com.au domain name for around $35 per year, and believe me, it could become worth a lot more!

So why buy a domain name & what can I do with a domain name?
There are lots of things you can do with a domain name. We've picked out the most popular, and likely reasons for wanting a domain name below.
Protect Your Identity
One of the greatest reasons to purchase a domain name is to protect your identity. One of the most popular reasons for buying a domain name, is to register yourname.com, or yourcompanyname.co.uk, regardless of whether you intend to use it in the near future or not. While this a great reason to buy a domain name if you ever want to use it in the future, it also prevents competitors or other people from registering your identity, and trading off your identity (or even something a little more unsavoury).
Point your domain to a website
Domain names provide a neat, human-friendly and memorable website address for visitors. By the way, if you haven't got your own website, check out the fitness web design packages at www.GYMLINKsites.com.au and get your business online now.
Set up unique e-mail addresses
You can of course use a domain name for email addresses. There are many free email providers such as Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail etc. but, it's incredibly difficult to find a good address that hasn't already been taken by somebody else. Instead, you'll be left with something like 'dave2k9SUPG@notmail.com', which is neither catchy nor particularly professional if you're running a business. An email address such as firstname.lastname@example.org is a far more impressive approach for your business email. Search domain names now.
