Owning a domain is essential to having a website, much like how your address is crucial for a house. A domain is your digital business card, making your web address unique and easy to remember. Without it, your website will remain invisible to your audience. At Design Grid, we recognise the significance of having a domain that accurately represents your brand and is user-friendly for your customers to remember and access.
We’re experts at managing your domains to make it easy for you, here’s where we can help:
Registering for a domain is your first step towards establishing an online presence. We offer a wide range of domain extensions, from the globally recognised .com to the Australia-specific .com.au and .au domain names. Whether you’re a local business in Melbourne or a nationwide to global enterprise, we have the domain registration services to suit your needs.
Once you’ve registered your domain, you’ll need web domain hosting to make your website accessible to the public. Web domain hosting and domain registration are two separate services. While domain registration gives you a name in the digital world, domain hosting provides the space for your website on a server, making it accessible over the internet. Design Grid offers reliable and comprehensive domain name registration and web hosting services. Our services provide a seamless and straightforward process to help you establish your new business quickly.
If you’re unsatisfied with your current domain provider or want to keep everything together quickly, you can transfer your domain to us. We make the process simple and hassle-free. We can also help with your web hosting.

The regulations and criteria established by AUDA.org.au in Australia specify that it is unacceptable to withhold the domain from the owner of the business name. We are here to help and work with you to resolve this issue.

A TLD, or Top-Level Domain, is the part of the domain name that follows immediately after the "dot" symbol. Examples include .com, .net, .org, .gov, .edu and country-specific ones such as .au for Australia.
The difference lies in the geographical focus and audience. .com is a generic TLD that anyone anywhere in the world can use. .com.au and .au are country-specific TLDs for Australia. If your primary audience is in Australia, using a .com.au or .au domain can help signal to users and search engines that your site is specifically targeted to that region.
Yes, you can transfer your domain to us. We offer a simple and hassle-free domain transfer service.
A domain name is your website's address (your mailing address), while hosting is where your website content is stored (this is your house and land). Both are necessary for your website to be accessible on the internet.
As per the regulations laid out by AUDA.org.au, it is mandatory to return the domain to the rightful owner if they possess the business name. Therefore, we can assist you in resolving this issue and have successfully aided numerous customers in acquiring their domain back from individuals holding it captive.
