    I've been seeing quite a few ads on SkyNews for special deals on golf rounds in Australia.

    The promoting company has a nice website - and the domain they are using is greatrounds.com

    I had a look at greatrounds.com.au, and the url doesn't resolve. So I think to myself that they mustn't own the name.

    But when I checked, they do own the name. Just haven't even bothered to do a forward or redirect.

    So as I said, sometimes I wonder. If you're spending squillions on advertising your product / brand, why wouldn't you do something as simple as that?

    firstly i thought they do not want ppl to remember their .com.au domain,, or they do not want to market .com.au domain,,as they sell world wide

    then i visited the site, they do sales only in Australia,, why the hell they do not want to use their .com.au domain then,
