Wow, thanks so much for all your great input. Most people seem to think we should go for shineweddings.com.au but register the other names. Sounds very sensible to me.

This might be a silly question to ask, but where do we go to buy the domain names? I’ve seen a few places on the internet where they say you can buy them. Are some places better than others? We’ll be using a website designer in a month of so to create our website but would like to register our domain names before then. And is there any way to set up a new email using our new domain name ourselves? We’re not techonologically competent, as you might be inferring from this post! :)

I now use VentraIP for all my domain name registrations and couldn’t recommend them highly enough. Their support is prompt and accurate and they include features that the other budget registrars make you pay extra for (DNS hosting for example).

I did use Crazy Domains for a few domains and although they weren’t terrible for domain name registrations, their support was a little lacking. Their website hosting and support WAS terrible though!

I used to use MelbourneIT for a corporate account and their support was brilliant – you paid for it though.

Good luck.
