    Is there anything I need to look out for? I know the address, do I just go to somewhere like crazy domains and buy it?

    Any pitfalls or is it as simple as that?

    If it's a .com.au you will need an ABN to register it.

    I used ventraip to register mine. Too much spam associated with the others.

    Yep that's simply all there is. Obviously it needs to be available.

    You can look somewhere like netfleet.com.au for buying / bidding on domains that are in use.

    Got the ABN. Site is vacant, and pretty cheap.

    Hosting with win host?

    Unfortunately the terminology beyond this means nada to me.
