What is a domain
A domain, or domain name, is an address for the internet. It is like a street address except for your website, email, etc.
Your domain will be made up of a word e.g. corvo, an optional domain name category e.g. org, and a country code e.g. .au
What is an IP address
An IP address, or Internet Protocol address is a unique identifying string of numbers, like 124.170.91.167, given to every individual computer, server, and network on the Internet. Like your GPS co-ordinates help identify exact locations, an IP address is used to identify and locate information online. Additionally, they allow for communication over the internet between devices and networks connected to the internet.
What is DNS Hosting
DNS, or Domain Name Server, hosting is like a phone book that maps your easy to read domain to the IP address for the server with your website or emails. When you purchase your domain name and web hosting account with us, the DNS Hosting is automatic. If you already have a domain, then DNS Hosting will be required to map your domain to the IP address for your web hosting and/or e-mail accounts.
What are Subdomains
A subdomain is like having another domain that is a subsidiary to your main domain. It is a completely different website and is usually used for things like support e.g. support.myinterestingwebsite.com.au or for forums e.g. forums.myinterestingwebsite.com.au. To see how to setup a subdomain visit our support portal on our subdomain my.corvo.com.au
What are Parked domains
Parked domains are additional domains hosted on your account which display the same website as your primary domain and share web statistics as well. e.g having myinterestingwebsite.com.au as a primary domain but also using myinterestingwebsite.com
What are Add-on domains
An addon domain is a second website, with its own unique content. This type of domain would require you to register the new domain name before you can host it.

The steps to having a website

  • Step 1. Buy the domain

  • Step 2. Purchase web hosting

  • Step 3. Design and develop your website

  • Step 4. Create your content

  • Step 5. Launch and market your site

R

egistering a Domain name requires some preparation and planning. You should consider the following when choosing a domain name.

Availability: Is the domain available and in which countries? Is it OK if the .com is already taken but the .com.au is available?

Recognition: Is the domain relate to your business name, brand, product, and/or activities? If you do abbreviate, ensure it is already a recognised business abbreviation.

Keep it simple: Where possible consider a shorter domain name, avoid special characters and words with confusing spellings.

Careful concatenation: Be careful joining words together. e.g. youraidatrainevent.com.au which people may start reading as "You Raid a Train Event" or "Your Aid At Rain Event"

What makes up a domain
Australian domains are made up of specific patterns which relate to specific things. e.g. http://www.corvo.com.au
  • The first component is known as the resource type or protocol and refers to the http (HyperText Transfer Protocol) or https (Secure HyperText Transfer Protocol)
  • The second component is a subdomain which can indicate the top level of your site e.g. www or may indicate a subsiduary to your main domain e.g. support, ftp, blog
  • Next is the word or name of your domain e.g. corvo
  • You may then see an optional category e.g. the QLD in qld.gov.au
  • Then we find the Top Level domain. These are the .com, .org, .net, .gov and new options such as .bike, .agency
  • And, lastly, the country code of .au
What is a nameserver
A nameserver is a dedicated server that maintains a directory of domain names that match certain IP addresses (computers). They can also be known as a DNS server or internet phonebook.
What is a URL
A URL, or Uniform Resource Locator, refers to the entire link that makes up a specific page on a website. e.g. http://corvo.com.au/contact. A URL includes the protocol (e.g. http/https), the domain (e.g. corvo.com.au) and the document or page.
.au Domain Administration Ltd (auDA) is the policy authority and industry self-regulatory body for the .au domain space. They
  • develop and implement domain name policies
  • accredit and licence registrars
