Can I reserve domains?

So you’ve thought of the perfect domain name, done a search and found it to be available but are hesitant to actually take the next step and register. You might be wondering if it’s possible for you to reserve it while you make up your mind.

Unfortunately, putting it on hold for any amount of time is not possible. So to ensure you’re not disappointed due to someone else snatching it up, it’s recommended that you register as soon as you can.

If the domain name is registered already, you can perform a WhoIs search and get contact details of the current registrant. This gives you the opportunity to enter into negotiations with them directly to ultimately have it transferred to your name. However, keep in mind that you won’t always be successful. In this case, all you can do is be patient and wait until their registration ends and quickly try and secure it yourself.

To make sure your required domain isn’t registered by someone else, call 1300 368 359 and we’ll lock it all in for you.
