Buying a Australian Domain name live 2017 Comparison

Filed in 2017, Domain Registration, Nameservers by on May 5, 2017

Today I purchased a job related domain name for 32% off. I was discussing a  job with  a colleague and  got an idea, so decided to buy a aussie domain name.  I was in search for an aussie domain name with the word “jobs” in it. I found a suitable name with the dot com dot au extension.

Godaddy Prices compared with Aussie domain name providers

As I recommend godaddy and have been using them for a long time I went to check them out and see what prices are like in 2017.

Here is the sweet deal I got

jobs domain name godaddy

I searched for s suitable name and found one which cost me $11.45 a year.

As Australian domain name registration’s need a minimum two year registration I had to pay $22.90 for a 2year registration for this domain name. Its still cheap compared to some other domain names you find out there. You won’t get a deal sweeter than that for an aussie domain.

Here are their prices ( not bad)

not bad pricing from crazy domains

They came up with a pretty good pricing  but still just a couple of cents  pricier than  godaddy. I prefer godaddy as they have cheap hosting and  much more streamlined interface for doing things in the admin area.

The good thing with godaddy is you also get a website builder free for the first month to test things out .  But i usually use wordpress CMS  for my websites, from their hosting options which is free to me as I have purchased  their  $1 hosting account with them too.

I would suggest you do the same as  wordpress is the easiest website building software you can use to build and maintain a website.

Good luck with your domain name hunting!
