Experience the simplicity of new .au Australian domain names, now shorter and more memorable than ever before.

With the introduction of the .au top-level domain, individuals and businesses with Australian connections have an exciting opportunity to secure a concise and unforgettable .au domain name. In Australia, our penchant for abbreviations is a cultural hallmark. This presents an excellent chance to adopt a shorter, more memorable alternative to existing domain names or to acquire a new one for the first time. Join the .au revolution today.

Secure your brand's identity by registering a .au domain name. For organizations that have built their brand using Australian top-level domains (TLDs) and maintained an online presence, securing the .au version of their domain name is highly recommended.

The initial priority registration period for new .au domain names concluded on September 20, 2022. Now, registration is open to anyone, provided the desired domain name is available.

For further details, please refer to the auDA website under the .au Domain Administration Rules: Licensing.

Do I qualify?

To qualify, you must demonstrate an 'Australian presence.' If your domain already has a .au extension, you will receive priority when registering the new .au extension for that domain. For instance, if you own 'yourdomain.com.au' or 'yourdomain.net.au,' you'll have priority for 'yourname.au.'

In cases where multiple parties have existing .au extensions for the same domain, there's a possibility of conflict. For instance, if you own 'yourdomainname.com.au' and another party owns 'yourdomainname.net.au,' a conflict may arise.

What is defined by an 'Australian Presence'

To be eligible, you must fall into one of the following categories:

  • A Sole Trader, Partnership, Company, Charity, Association, or Trust with a valid ABN or ACN.
  • A permanent resident or citizen of Australia.
  • A foreign business holding an Australian trademark application or registration.

What does this new domain name cost?

The domain registration for 2 years is $46.00. Includes free domain ID protection. Add web hosting at time of checkout and get 10% discount on any plan as a bonus. Use TAKE10OFF promo code. Expires 31 Dec 2024.
