Why register a domain name?
The answer is simply to protect your online identity at a cost effective price. Your domain name is your address on the internet and is the first step towards your online presence. The domain name provides you with an online identity or brand. Protecting your domain name or names is important in protecting your online identity. It’s a valuable part of your business identity and an invaluable marketing tool.
To gain the best advantage on the Internet you should consider registering your company name as well as any abbreviations along with any trademark of products and/or services. Abbreviations become more important if you have a long or difficult to spell business name.
For example: a three letter Domain name like www.xyz.com.au is far easier to remember than a long domain name or asking the user to type in a difficult to spell company name.
Further advantages to a short domain name is it can help when customers want to visit or revisit your site, if you have a short easy to remember domain name.
