How do I register a domain name?

To register a domain name in Australia you must have some registered business name (a BRN, ACN or ABN). This helps protect the integrity of your name, and deters others from usurping it or poaching it.

Your domain name can be the name of your business or some service you provide.

Names in the .au domain in Australia have been more tightly controlled and more closely supervised than in many other countries since the earliest days. This has helped give greater security to, and protection of, your domain name.

That is why we recommend our clients register names in the Australian registry. An Australian Registrar of Record is also easier to approach for advice and assistance.

We have found Enetica to be the best (and best value) and most manageable registrar of record.

Accordingly, we are please to be associated with Enetica as an authorised reseller of their products.

Please see below for current pricing on domain name registration.
