Today I purchased a job related .com.au 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
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 .com.au 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.

How they fared with dot com au domain names
Just to compare what prices are like on other websites for an au domain, I gave it a go on these websites below – Check it out
Did a search on digital pacific here are the results
Who wants to fly, digital pacific was also giving me Qantas 75 business rewards points with my domain name rego.
This is the price i got for Domain registration. They didnt give me a price for the particualr domain i was searching , but told me to register first with their website. But the prices were lsited as below
Here are their prices ( not bad)
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.
I was expecting them to be cheaper than this at the least , but lordy dordy , – here are their price compared to godaddy right below this image.
The total bill for my godaddy.com 2 year domain name purchase was $22.90
You can also make use of the 32% discount by using the code shown in picture which will get applied by clicking this link here.
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!
