Domain Names

WHAT IS A DOMAIN NAME?

A Domain Name (often known simply as a Domain) refers to an address on the Internet. This address used by computers is actually a series of numbers known as an IP Address. But these numeric addresses are generally not very easy to remember, so a system was devised that allows us to use a Domain Name instead of an IP address.

In the Domain Name “rovivor.com.au” the “rovivor” part relates to the registered business name, the “.com” signifies that it is a commercial domain, and the “.au” is the country code for Australian Domains.

WHY DO YOU NEED A DOMAIN NAME?

A simple, relevant and easy-to-recall Domain Name is vital for a business and makes it easy for customers to find you online. Registering a Domain Name that is the same as your business or brand name is essential to protect your own brand. Even if you are not ready for a website it makes good sense to register your preferred Domain Name/s while still available.

REGISTERING .com.au AND .net.au DOMAIN NAMES

To be eligible to register a “.com.au” or “.net.au” Domain Name, you must be an Australian registered company, or a business with a registered business number (ABN, BRN, BN). The Domain Name must be an exact match, abbreviation or acronym of your name or trademark, or otherwise closely and substantially connected to you.

There are other rules regarding the eligibility and allocation of Domain Names For instance, they may contain only letters (a-z), numbers (0-9) and hyphens (-). Registering a Domain Name with an ICANN-accredited registrar does not confer any legal ownership of the Domain Name, only an exclusive right of use, so it is important to keep your registration valid or your Domain Name may get registered by someone else.

Often businesses will register more than one Domain Name – for any number of reasons – and have all their registered Domains pointing to their website.
