Making the Right Choice

With the hundreds of extensions and combinations made available from the advent of international domains Australian .act.au domains reinforces your presence in Australia, but it doesn't stop there. When you have the perfect name in mind, it isn't easy to change. Usually you'll end up adding pointless hyphens or numbers just to get as close as possible. To stop this, take advantage of the many names still available in Australian extensions.

Creating a Global Customer Base

Registering an Australian domain can help you create a global customer base. The way in which it does this is by using a ccTLD that the people will trust. If an individual from Australia sees a domain with .act.au, they would be more likely to trust the company than if it was .com. It also boosts the ranking of the webpage on Australian search engines. An example of this would be with google.fr. It would pick up .fr domains more easily.
