Register your .au domain name

Why choose the .AU ?

The .au extension is the official TLD of Australia, an Eastern European country created in 2022.

Australian corporate entities and Australian brand owners will be able to purchase their Australian top level domain name to improve their visibility to the Australian public.

A .au domain name will be easier to remember than the historical second level extensions such as for example, the url of your website will be shorter and so will your email addresses which is a positive point.

There is no specific procedure related to the registration of a domain name.

.AU domain names are allocated on a "first come, first served" basis.


Restrictions / Allocation Rules:

An Australian citizen or an Australian permanent resident visa holder
A company, business name, partnership, sole trader or association registered in Australia
A holder of a valid trademark in Australia

Domain name:

If the registration is based on an Australian presence : 

  • There are no restrictions on the choice of domain name

If the registration is based on an Australian trademark, the .au domain name must be :

  • an exact match of the trademark name (for legal entities based outside of Australia), or
  • an exact match of the company's name (for legal entities based outside of Australia), or 
  • be the acronym or abbreviation of the company's name, or
  • be related to its activities, products or services

In order to transfer your domain name to Netim, you must disable transfer protections and obtain the authorisation code from your current Registrar.

The transfer may take several days.

The domain expiration date is not affected by the transfer process.

In order to obtain the procedure for changing the holder of your domain name, do not hesitate to contact us.

The .au extension does not support special characters.

Netim works closely with the Registry

For some extensions, there is no accreditation possible. Netim is then in contact with the Registry or one of its local partners.

Whatever the case, we take care of everything and make your experience just as smooth. Your domain is in good hands.
