Well, I didn’t have to quote a business name to get the subdomain, I’m not too cluey on the whole business of sub vs domain. I’ve just been told that to get a domain name you have to have a registered business name if you were not using your first/surname.
To get a domain name you simply buy it if you’re after a .com. If you want the .com.au then you need an ABN, which you can get as a Sole Trader.

However you may need to register a business name in order to get the ABN if you’re trading under anything other than your real name.

So if you got a sub-domain, who owns the main domain that it’s under?
