Domain name is the address of your website that people type in the browser URL bar to visit your website.
The Internet is a giant network of computers connected to each other through a global network of cables. Each computer on this network can communicate with other computers.
To identify them, each computer is assigned an IP address. It is a series of numbers that identify a particular computer on the internet. A typical IP address looks like this:
Now an IP address like this is quite difficult to remember. Imagine if you had to use such numbers to visit your favorite websites.
Domain names were invented to solve this problem.
Now if you want to visit a website, then you don’t need to enter a long string of numbers. Instead, you can visit it by typing an easy to remember domain name in your browser’s address bar. For example; sunnyhost.com.au
Your domain name is your unique identity. Any individual, business or organization planning to have an online presence needs to invest in a domain name. Having your own domain name, website and email addresses will give you and your business a more professional look. Another reason for a business to register a domain name is to protect copyrights and trademarks, build credibility, increase brand awareness, and search engine positioning. For Australia has .com.au which signifies companies located within Australia, just like this one!
Unfortunately it is impossible to refund domain names, so it’s very important that you are careful when registering your domain to ensure there are no typos and you are happy with your selection
The .COM.AU extension identifies the domain entity as being based in Australia and an ABN, ACN or ARBN are essential to register the domain. There are also other requirements that can be found on the auDA (Australian Domain Name Administrator) website. The AUDA are an organisation that manages and governs the .AU namespace and ensures all rules and policies are enforced. If you’re located in Australia and need domains for your business then .com.au is for you.
