I'd rather host a .com domain name than a .com.au. 

We can setup and register a .com within 6 hours usually it is only costs 
$25 per year. We even have a free domain name promotion too. 

The .com.au's are slow to setup and when transferring them to our servers, 
the .com.au doesn't usually work when we first try redelegating them cause 
INA need the domains to be fully setup on the nameservers. 

Regards, 
Nigel
