What is a domain name?
A domain name is the name that you type in the browser address bar to access a website on the internet. For example, our domain name here at Phunkemedia is 'phunkemedia.com', and we also have 'phunkemedia.com.au'
Domain names are case insensitive, must be more than 3 characters long and less than 63 characters long. You can only include letters, numbers and hypens in your domain name.
You can buy domain names for periods of up to 3 years for a '.com' and for 2 years for a '.com.au' domain name. If you would like to purchase a '.au' domain name, you must have an ABN and your domain name must reflect your business name.
There are some other rules for domain names, but these few should keep you on the right track.
