What is a Domain Name?

Find Your Perfect Name

A domain name is the address that you type into your browser to visit particular websites. Without a domain name, a user would have to type in the IP address of the server you are hosted on to view your website.

There are Top level domains (TLD), which include any that contain only one suffix — for example; .com, .net, .info, and so on.

Second level domains or 2LDs are domain names containing another level after the .com suffix. For example; .com.au is a second level domain as it contains an additional suffix after the .com that shows the website originates in Australia.

By registering a domain name, you are securing your online identity. You can register multiple domain names for your business, so no other business can take the name. For example you can register yourbusiness.com and yourbusiness.com.au.

Once you have registered a domain name, you can begin to build or edit your website through your Web Hosting account.

Transferring a Domain Name

Once a domain name has been registered, it can be transferred to different hosts anywhere in the world. We allow you to transfer to your domain name to us, at our Domain Name Transfer page. You will need your EPP/auth code that can be found at the client area of your current Domain Name Registrar.
