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.

Included with every domain

Unlimited forwards
1 email address of 1GB
1 Let's Encrypt SSL certificate
Worldwide Anycast DNS and DNSSEC
250MB of SSD drive space

From 24 March to 20 September 2022, only holders of a domain name under .com.au, .net.au etc... will be able to request the equivalent in .au directly.

  • These holders have a priority right to the strictly identical .au domain name.
  • If several people are holders of the same domain name under different second-level extensions, there will be a notion of priority.

We advise you to check this point before submitting your request, using the tool set up by the registry https://www.auda.org.au/tools/priority-status-tool

If no 3rd level domain name exists, you can register your .au directly.


Restrictions / Allocation Rules:

From 24 March to 20 September 2022, only holders of a domain name under .com.au, .net.au etc... will be able to request the equivalent in .au directly.

If no 3rd level domain name exists, you can register your .au directly.

Owner:
An Australian citizen or an Australian permanent resident visa holder
or
A company, business name, partnership, sole trader or association registered in Australia
or
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 (unlike .com.au and .net.au, it does not have to match the abbreviation or acronym of the company name or be related to its business, products or services)
  • If the registration is based on an Australian trademark, the .au domain name must be strictly identical to the trademark (as is the case with .com.au and .net.au).

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.
