I see when I start a new project, it has a company domain. However, I'm not working at a software company, nor do I even have my own website. So I have no domain to use. What should I put in this field, if I want to make a legitimate app that Google will accept on their app store? Am I required to have a website prior to posting an app to Google Play store, so that my app will have an actual working domain? Or can I set this to anything I want it to be? Does Google basically require a person to have their own website before they will even consider apps submitted to them?

Does nobody really know the answer to this? I posted this yesterday, and not received a reply. When using Android Studio and starting a new project, it lets you use a default domain, but that's not my real domain, and in fact I don't have one. So if I want to upload an app to Google for others to download, am I required to get myself a website/domain so that I can fill this in properly? Or can I just select anything I want to fill it in with?

Hai Ben,

The domain name is used by Android Studio to generate a package name. Your package name is just a unique identifier for your application in the Google Play Store. It can be anything you want as long as it is unique. Generally, i used reverse domain names like com.something. or org.something. structure for naming java packages.

Yes, you just need a simple website related to your app. And don't forget to add privacy policy page on website. B'coz Google Play store will not publish your app if your website will not have privacy policy page.

package Id (bundle Id is name used on iOS) does not really matter except for the moments you see it like in the case of play store links. Yet, the only thing that technically matters is to make it unique among all published apps (which it is the case, otherwise you would not be able to publish).

However, as you already have app published, you are not able to change your package Id. It's already sealed. Forget it. The only thing you can do if you insist of having different package it is to withdraw current app from the store and publish the new one (even if the only thing that differs is the package Id). So if you want to do that and your user base is yet tiny, better hurry up.

A domain is really cheap. Get one so when you want you can set up a website. In the mean time you can use it for mail. Free domains are also an option. Usually they are 2nd level. Just google it.
