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.

I'd be really interested to hear if you have any experience using this site. It seems really easy to use but is WIX a good long term solution for a small operation? I need a shopping cart.Thanks in advance!
