Am I eligible to register .AU domain names?
The .AU domain extension cannot be registered by just anyone. There are restrictions in place that keep certain businesses and individuals from registering.
For example, .com.au and .net.au are only able to be registered by businesses operating in Australia, who possess either an ABN, ACN, Trademark Number, State Business Number or Incorporated Association Number.
Individuals without any of the above numbers who would like an .AU extension to run a non-commercial website, id.au is the answer. To register this, photo identification is needed and the domain itself has to be directly related to the name/nickname of the registrant.
If you’re a non-profit or a registered charity, you can apply for a .org.au address, and those who’d like to secure something for their non-profit sports clubs, associations or otherwise can opt for .asn.au.
At the end of the day, choosing to go with the .AU country suffix can be a great way to increase your brand’s equity with the local market in Australia and will bring your website into local search results. To obtain your very own Australian ccTRD, give our team a call on 1300 368 359 now.
