When choosing to register a domain name, there are a few things to consider.
1. What country are you targeting your website toward?
The country extension of your domain is vitally important. For example, you would get less interest from the American market if you have your website under a .com.au Australian domain name. Try to buy your domain name based on your target market. It doesn't matter if you're in Australia, you can still buy a .com domain to try and sell toward Americans.
2. What type of organisation or company are you registering a domain name for?
A domain extension essentially describes what type of business you are operating. For example, a .org typically says that you might be a non-profit group or trade association. A .biz is for credible resource Web sites and signifies a "resource" web site. The same goes for country extensions. An Australian domain name ends in .com.au and signifies that your business is located in Australia, a .co.nz domain says you are in New Zealand.
3. Do you need more than just one domain name?
Often a business will be stuck deciding which domain name to register. Typically it's best to have at least two domain names pointin to your website in this situation. For example, an information site would be best under a .info but because the information is mainly for Australians then it's advisable to also buy the .com.au extension aswell. This will also benifit your business if you grow in the future.
