Am looking at setting up direct sales website, mainly focused on Australia market. Should I choose a domain name with .com.au extension? Does .com usually apply to US?
What sort of support do you get from the host? Should the host be Australian-based?
If you are Only focusing on Australia, then I'd just get a .com.au domain. It lets visitors know that you're based in Australia.
If you are also looking at international then get a .com as well, and/or a domain local to where your market is targeting ie. if asia is a target market then think about getting .asia.
Hosting: If your target market is only Australia, then an Aussie host would be a good idea as the website will be a bit faster. Unfortunately Aussie hosting is more expensive than US.
