You can apply for a .au domain via the website of an accredited .au registrar or a reseller.

Domain names in the .au ccTLD are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis subject to whether the name is available and the Person/applicant has an Australian presence and satisfies any relevant eligibility criteria.

The application process is generally quick and you’ll be able to use your domain name soon after applying for it.

The registrar will ask for:

  1. The legal name and contact information of the Person applying;
  2. administrative and technical contact information
  3. Evidence that you satisfy the Australian presence requirement and any applicable eligibility and allocation criteria that applies to the name being applied for
  4. How long you want to register the name for – between and one and five years.
  5. Your agreement to the licence terms and conditions;

You’ll also need to pay the licence fee when you lodge your application.

The registrar will validate the information you've provided and once they are satisfied you meet the relevant terms and conditions your choice of name will be allocated to you.
