I am not even sure what is meant when it asks for my domain name.

It is asking for "snoopy.apana.org.au", "apana.org.au" or

To me, the first line "What is your domain?" implies "apana.org.au",
but the next line "Please enter the domain name for your host." implies
"snoopy.apana.org.au" (simply because the domain name isn't attached to
any particular host).

If I can't work it out, what chance does a new user have?
