Registering a name

The eligibility and allocation rules determine who can register what domain names in the .au ccTLD.
A domain name is an address on the internet which people can use to find resources like websites, or send email. 
Applications to register a domain name are made via a registrar.
To apply for a name in the .au ccTLD you must have an Australian presence and meet the requirement of the domain name you're applying for.
Reserved names are domain names that cannot be registered by law.
The name you choose must be available, not reserved and have the right syntax.
A domain name licence is a contract between you and a registrar and when you register one, you agree to a set of terms and conditions.
