How do I buy a .AU domain name?

It’s important to note first of all that you’re not in fact able to buy a domain name – you’re essentially renting it from the registry for a certain period of time, which can vary depending on which extension you’ve chosen. If you decide to register a .org.au, .com.au, .id.au, .net.au or .asn.au the standard length of time is two years, while others can offer up to a full decade.

While you’re not able to actually purchase a domain name outright, you can in fact keep renewing your registration to ensure you stay in control.

Now you understand a bit of background about it all, why not register a .com.au domain or another extension through Hosting Australia today? Phone us on 1300 368 359.
