A Web Site, or Web Page is found by typing in the address of the web page. Web addresses consist of a domain name and a path to a web page.

The domain is a location or address that belongs to the owner. It is generally the name of a business. When the domain name is typed into an internet browser (such as Internet Explorer) it is translated into the address of the computer that is hosting the domain. If no web page is specified the index or default web page is displayed.

An example of a domain held by Visual Automation is www.visualautomation.com.au

Domain Names are issued by regulating bodies and can have varying suffixes depending on your eligibility. Suffixes such as .com are globally issued to companies, whereas .com.au is issued only in Australia.  Others include .net, .net.au, .org, .biz, .info.

As your domain name is a form of advertising for your business you should register domain names to protect your business identity. Even if you don't plan to use them just yet, it prevents anyone else using them. You can 'point' multiple domain names at the one web site later.

The regulating bodies do, however, place restrictions on the domain names you can register, especially for .com and .com.au suffixes. To achieve final acceptance, the name you wish to register must be similar to your registered company or business name, or contain letters of these without rearranging the order of the letters.

-> Check or Register Australian Name (.com.au)

-> Check or Register World Wide Name (.com, .net)
