I want to buy a domain name from yola but which is the right end part or prefix of the domain e.g. .au, .com, .info etc that I should choose that is appropriate for the content of website. My website is about me but I think might help others too
.au, .info and others are not yet available through Yola.
If it's simply a personal story site then you may like to consider a .me domain, for example, they cost about $10. This is available through GoDaddy. They have a wide range of domain types and these are easily pointed to Yola without additional fees.
The type of domain you select should reflect the kind of site you publish. .com domains have traditionally been used for "commercial" sites, .info for information site, .biz for "business" sites a .com.au is really a commercial site focused on Australian commerce, requiring a business registration number and so on.
Gop has given you some valuable and accurate information Brian. If you are interested in a domain extension that we don't offer you can easily purchase it elsewhere and point it to your Yola site on the same day of purchase. That said, I would just emphasize that alternate extensions have a variety of uses and benefits but if the name you are looking for is available as a .com, it is a powerful extension and is commonly used for a wide variety of website types.
