Domain Names Frequently Asked Questions
Technically speaking, a domain name (or ‘domain’) is “a realm of administrative autonomy, authority, or control in the Internet, based on the Domain Name System (DNS)”. Practically speaking, it is a way to assign an alphanumeric name to a website / set of e-mail addresses / other network services, without requiring those utilizing those resources to know the numerical IP address of the server hosting those resources. Therefore, instead of visiting http://192.168.0.1, or sending an e-mail to email@example.com, one can simply access http://www.netlogistics.com.au or firstname.lastname@example.org. It should be noted that although www is part of most web addresses, it is not part of the domain name.
Companies such as Net Logistics offer domain registration services. If you would like to register a domain name with us, simply utilise our order form.
For .au (Australian) domain names, the registration process typically takes about forty-eight hours. For .com, .net and .org domains, the process is often somewhat faster.
No — the only fee associated with your domain name is its yearly (or two year) registration fee.
Yes — please contact us if you wish to do so.
You may register as many domains as you wish. Some individuals and firms own upwards of tens of thousands of domains.
Domain registration operates on a first-come, first-serve basis. It is generally extremely difficult to have someone’s domain registration reverted (e.g. you typically have to prove bad faith and well-established ownership on your part of a related trade or service mark). As a result, the best option is almost always to find another domain name to register.
Yes — if you register it, you are the owner of the domain.
Domain names must be between 2 and 63 characters, and can consist of any combination of letters, numbers and hyphens (-), with the exception that a domain name cannot begin or end with a hyphen.
To register a .com.au or .net.au domain name, you must be an Australian registered company, or, alternatively, a business with a registered business number (e.g. ABN, BRN, or BN). Similarly, to register a .asn.au or .org.au domain name, you must be an Australian non-commercial organisation. Individuals are entitled to register domains within the .id.au namespace. There are no restrictions on who can register a .com, .net or .org domain name. For more information on any restrictions, please read the questions below, or contact us.
An ABN/ACN/ABRN or equivalent is required. Individuals are allowed to obtain .au domain names, but must first apply for an ABN (they may do so under the entity type of ‘sole trader’). We cannot process domain registrations without ABN/ACN/ABRN or ASRN information. The following additional requirements apply with respect to the domain name you wish to register:
» It must be an exact match of the business name or trademark OR;
» An abbreviation of the business name or trademark OR;
» An acronym of the business name or trademark OR;
» The name of a product that your business manufactures or sells OR;
» The name of a program that your business administers OR;
» An activity that your business facilitates, teaches or trains OR;
» The name of a service that your business provides OR;
» The name of a venue that your business operates OR;
» The name of a profession that is practiced by the business employees or members OR;
» An event that your business organises or sponsors.
.org.au domains are typically reserved for charities and non-profit organisations. This includes entities such as clubs, churches, community service organisations, welfare organisations, or other groups that may fit that category. Essentially any non-commercial/non-profit Australian entity is eligible to register .org.au domains. In order to process your registration, we will require your organisation’s name. Although not required, it is preferable if you can provide us with a ABN/ACN/ABRN or ARSN that is of your registered charity or non-profit organisation.
.asn.au domains are intended for incorporated associations, political parties, trade unions, sporting and special interest clubs. To register, we will require the name of your organisation. An ABN/ACN/ABRN or ARSN is not required, but is preferred. If you provide an ABN/ACN/ABRN or ARSN, it must indicate an incorporated association, political party, trade union, sporting or special interest club registration. Any non-commercial registered Australian entity is eligible to register such a domain, but the domain must meet one of the following conditions:
» Be the name of a program that the organisation administers OR;
» An activity that your organisation facilitates, teaches or trains OR;
» A service that your organisation provides OR;
» A venue that the organisation operates OR;
» A profession that is practiced by the organisation’s employees or members OR;
» An event that your organisation organises or sponsors.
.id.au domains are specifically for individuals, therefore there are no ABN/ACN/ABRN/ARSN requirements. Registrants must reside in Australia, and the domain name must be derived from or include the individual’s name. For purposes of clarification, Jane Doe could register (if available) jane.id.au, doe.id.au, janedoe.id.au, janed.id.au, and so on. Domains with an obscure association are likely to be rejected for registration.
Yes — provided you are the owner of the brand, or a legally authorised representative of the brand’s owner.
No — although by using the services of a web hosting provider like Net Logistics, you can have www.yourdomainname.com.au, email@example.com, and much more. Our Impulse shared hosting package represents a particularly good choice for those just starting out with an online presence. However, if you would simply like to purchase a domain, you may do that, and “park” it at Net Logistics.
auDA is the Australian-government appointed regulatory authority that oversees the .au domain namespace. auDA creates and enforces the rules and regulations governing Australian domain names.
WHOIS refers to a set of public domain name databases, that can be accessed by anyone to locate information regarding a domain such as ownership, expiry date (except on .au namespace domains), and assigned nameservers.
