Can I register a com.au domain name if it is available?

In order to register .com.au domain names, you'll need to be eligible. To be eligible, registrants need to fulfil one of the following criteria, being either:   

  • A company registered in Australia; or
  • operating under a registered business name in any Australian State or Territory; or
  • an Australian partnership or sole trader; or
  • an overseas company licensed to trade in Australia; or
  • an owner of an Australian Registered Trade Mark; or
  • an applicant for an Australian Registered Trade Mark ; or
  • an association incorporated in any Australian State or Territory; or
  • an Australian commercial statutory body. 

As well as registering .com.au, the above also applies to acquiring .net.au names. Eligibility for other .au website addresses can be viewed in our domain name registration guide.

A valid application with accurate details must be submitted and approved before the domain name is considered to be fully licensed; but this is a very rapid process.

This submission procedure fully occurs online as part of your name registration process and we will only contact you if further details are required. 

Your online registration application will be assessed to determine both that the information provided is valid and that it meets the allocation criteria. While this process may seem onerous, it serves to protect the integrity of the .com.au space and is one of the reasons why .com.au domain names remain one of the most trusted extensions; both locally and overseas. The eligibility criteria and process helps to protect registrants as well.

If you're unsure of your eligibility to register .com.au domains, please feel free to contact our office for assistance and clarification.

We also recommend you refer to our domain name registration tips guide before you register .com.au website addresses for further information and handy advice about domain name selection and choosing the right address for your purposes.
