Domain Name Registration

A domain name is basically an alpha-numeric name or address used to identify a computer. Think of it as a phone number - except words instead of numbers.

The most common reason for registering a domain name is if you want to build a website - but is also required if you want to set up mail, ftp, or any other service where you need a unique address corresponding to your brand name.

Domain Parking

Domain parking gives your domain a temporary home while you work out what you want to do with your domain name. Its similar to URL forwarding - but designed for those who don't actually have an existing website URL, and simply want a placeholder page.

Domain parking is FREE with all domains registered or renewed through Computus Australis

Premium URL Forwarding

URL forwarding (also known as URL cloaking) lets you point your domain to your existing web space without spending a cent on hosting. For example, if you registered the domain name mycompany.com, you make www.mycompany.com point to another URL - say, one hosted with your ISP - or even a free hosting service such as geocities.

The advantage of this, is that you can get rid of your long URL address, such as: http://www.yourISP.com/users/yourname/ and replace it with your own brand without spending a cent on web hosting. With our unique Premium URL management facility, you can specify where to point your domain as well as providing a title and META tags for search engines. Our system is totally invisible to your visitors, we do not place any advertising on your web site. The Premium URL forwarding features are accessible from the domain 'manage' menu.

Even if you have your website hosted, our Premium URL Forwarding package will give you up to 10 different sub domains. For example, if your domain was sport.com.au, you could have subdomains like tennis.sport.com.au, footy.sport.com.au, swimming.sport.com.au etc.

Premium URL forwarding is FREE with all domains registered or renewed through Computus Australis

DNS Hosting 

DNS Hosting is perfect for any domain owner who wants complete control of their domain. Our fully automated DNS Hosting service allows you to control your dns records through our already existing domain management area.

Using this service you can update / insert / delete Domain Servers (A Records), Domain Aliases (CNAME Records) and Mail Servers (MX Records) of your own accord. DNS Hosting is an extremely valuable tool, and we urge you to take advantage of it.

Email Forwarding

Our fully automated email forwarding system lets you control your email by allowing you to select what mailbox email sent to any of your domains ends up in. It is the most cost effective way to have email facilities added to your domain, and also the simplest. Just specify your current email address with your ISP as the destination mailbox and without you having to make any changes to your email software, our server will direct all email coming to your new domain direct to your desktop.

The default email forwarding pack comes with 10 aliases that you can assign to mailboxes. The 'single' pack collects all email at your domain and sends it to just one mailbox you specify, but is only available with id.au domains.

Email Forwarding can be used with any domain and costs just $29 per year

SSL Certificates

If you're doing business on the Internet, you need to have an SSL Certificate. Without one, you're potentially losing a lot of business, because most Internet users will refuse to provide personal information or conduct transactions on unsecured sites. SSL protects all communications with your customers, so you can take credit card orders, protect sensitive personal information, and ensure that hackers cannot detect passwords... read more

128-bit GeoTrust SSL certificates start from only $75
