We have precisely one company register, run by the Australian
Securities Commission, who issue an ACN for the company.

There are separate *business name* registers in each state, but this
is not at all the same thing. Many state-registered business names
are owned by ASC-registered companies.

In general, people don't know or care whether a business is
registered by the ASC or the state business name registration body,
so using this as the basis for a domain name will make it harder
for people to find you on the 'Net.
