A domain name is the first step in establishing an online presence.
A domain name is the address of a web site: www.domainname.com.au
A domain name is also used with email accounts and address: firstname.lastname@example.org
A good domain name sends a crystal clear message about who you are and what you do. It makes it easier for customers to find you, and means more eyes on your business.
You can either register a ‘new’ domain name (if available) or purchase a pre-registered domain name.

Pre-Registered Domain Names For Sale
We have pre-registered domain names for sale.
The benefits of buying a ‘pre-registered’ domain name are:
- Age and history – search engines reward aged domains
- Suitability – domain names with flair
2013 – Update – Multiple Domain Names*
In the past, there was an advantage to owning multiple domain names. Mainly from a search engine point of view, key-word domain names had ranking advantage but this is no longer the case.
The remaining benefits of owning multiple domain names are:
- to prevent competitors registering and sitting on them
- prevents mis-spelling competition
- for surfers who type a domain name directly into the address bar
Domain Name Scams
From time to time, we get calls from clients asking about letters they have received about their domain name
- We never send renewal advice by post, always by email.
- Our correspondence is clearly marked as Ripefruit.
In most cases, the letters our clients receive are domain name scams | read more about domain name letters (post)
