As a sole trader, you can only have 1 ABN. Through ASIC you can register and link multiple business names if you are running multiple businesses.

Many people will claim variants of their main domain to cover misspelling or. Not putting the full address then have forwarders in place to redirect people to the correct website.
Domain registration is not tied to business name registration as different entities handle this.
When you invoice, your ABN and your registered business name must be on the invoice. If you are registered for GST then the amount of GST on the invoice must be clearly stated. If your business earns more than75k /yr then you should be registering for GST.

Hope this helps
