You'll have to drop off the leftmost sections one by one, on complex ones like that one, before you find the registered domain. In this case, it's abs.gov.au. That sort of thing's a bit more obvious with names like www.example.com or www.something.or.other.example.com. The domain is "example.com", that's the data that's registered and findable through whois. Any sub-domains are just DNS records, they're at the whim of the domain owner (subject to technical requirements of domain name construction, of course). -- (Currently running FC4, occasionally trying FC5.)
