I've had a little idea for a new website and was having a look at .com.au domain names last night. However, I soon found out I was pretty much ineligible to get one as I don't have a business premises there and the obvious point that the domain i want is taken, although not in use.
Then I came across a company offering .au.com domains which was a new one on me. I have seen .uk.com domains before and so I guess others like this exists as well. (I even seem to remember seeing .gb.net domains, but you'd have to be getting desperate).
Has anyone had any luck with these? I imagine they aren't as well known as .com.au and when i see a .uk.com, i never think of it as being on the same level as .co.uk, as it is well known and makes .uk.com appear second best (which it is).
What is different though is that .au.com is the exact reverse of .com.au, so I could imagine if someone told there mate to check out my websiet using www.domain.au.com he may very well go and type in www.domain.com.au unless he is knowledgeable on the subject.
Has anyone got any thoughts?
