AU Domains

Don't miss out on your AU Direct Domain Name

We are inviting our existing Australian clients with .com.au domain names to pre-register and order your new .AU direct domain names, such as yourbusiness.au - many of you will already meet the registration criteria and we can assist you with this process by taking advantage of your priority status.

Priority Status is only available for the first 6 months of domain launch.

Why should I even bother to register a .AU direct domain?

As with your existing .com.au domain name an .AU domain helps establishes a high level of recognition and trust from local Australian customers.

Additionally some of the following advantages could be obtained.

  • Your domain can be more memorable and easier to type
  • Provide a wider selection of available .AU domain names
  • Prevent brand confusion among clients and customers
  • Streamline valuable traffic to your website
  • Use your new domain for landing pages, email accounts and more.
  • Ensure your more nefarious actors, competitors & spammers don't register a similar domain to your organisation.
