Popular .AU is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) representing Australia.
At the moment, it is not possible to register directly a top-level .AU domain (such as mycompany.au). The naming rules for .AU require registrations under second-level categories that describe a type of entity.
Opened second-level domains (available for the public) that you can register with Affordable Domains are:
- COM.AU - commercial entities
- NET.AU - registered companies
- ORG.AU - associations and non-profit organizations
Other opened domains are:
- ID.AU - Australian citizens (individuals) only
- ASN.AU - associations, political parties and clubs
A .com.au and .net.au registrant must be one of the following:
- An Australian registered company
- Trading under a registered business name in any Australian State or Territory
- An Australian partnership or sole trader
- A foreign company licensed to trade in Australia
- An owner of an Australian Registered Trade Mark
- An applicant for an Australian Registered Trade Mark
- An association incorporated in any Australian State or Territory
- An Australian commercial statutory body
You will be requested to enter an ID number depending on the selected registrant type (ID type):
- ABN (Australian Business Number) - format: 11 digits without spaces, hyphens, etc.
- ACN (Australian Company Number)
The registrant name should match the one associated with the ID Number (ABN/ACN). You can check it using the ABN lookup tool at http://abr.business.gov.au
You can renew your .com.au, .net.au, and .org.au domain name 90 days prior to its expiration date.
