What are the registration requirements for registering a .AU domain?

In order to register a .COM.AU or .NET.AU domain name, the domain owner must meet the following requirements: 

  • Domain name must be an exact match, abbreviation or acronym of your name, or otherwise be closely and substantially connected to it. 
  • Foreign companies and individuals must also have a registered trademark or a trademark application in Australia (an International trademark that includes the Australian territory is also valid) .

If you do not meet these requirements, we suggest you file a Trademark Registration Request in Australia for Domain Registration with us. This service takes around 72 hours and has a one-time fee of US $410. You can request your trademark by filling in Trademark Registration Order Form.

  • Select “Word Mark”, class 38. 
  • Write “For .AU domain registration” in the “Goods/services” box.
