Your Domain name is your website address used by the Internet Domain Name System to identify your website on the world wide web.
If you are an Australian company your domain name will normally end with .au, thus designating you are based in Australia.
For example, URL: https:/www.yourbusiness.com.au
In the above example https is the protocol used when data is transferred over a secure connection, with the (s) signifying that the website is secure and safe to use (see SSL Certificate). http: no (s) is a site that is not certified secure and deters viewers from opening the website.
You pay a small fee to register your domain name with the domain registrar generally for two years, after which you need to renew your registration. For a business registration you will need to provide your ABN.
Registration for .com, and overseas registrations can be yearly and can be registered through an Australia registry.
We normally register and manage domains on behalf of our clients, so they don’t have to worry about forgetting passwords, not renewing on time, etc.
