.COM.AU domains are a type of top-level domain (TLD) specific to Australia. They are used for websites, businesses, and organizations located or operating within the country.

Requirements

.COM.AU domains can be registered if you have a business and a valid business number within Australia. A list of accepted business numbers can be found below:

  • ARBN

  • Australian Business Number (ABN)

  • Australian Capital Territory Business Number (ACT BN)

  • Australian Company Number (ACN)

  • New South Wales Business Number (NSW BN)

  • Northern Territory Business Number (NT BN)

  • Queensland Business Number (QLD BN)

  • South Australia Business Number (SA BN)

  • Tasmania Business Number (TAS BN)

  • Trademark (TM)

  • Victoria Business Number (VIC BN)

  • Western Australia Business Number (WA BN)

Once you have everything selected and your business number entered, you'll be asked to choose Relationship Between the Eligibility and Domain:

The relationship

Explanation

A domain name is an exact match, an acronym or abbreviation of the company or trading name, organization or association name, or trademark

👈 Choose this option if your domain is exactly the same as your company name or has your company name on it.

If everything is correct, the domain will be registered within 24 hours.

A domain name is closely and substantially connected to the organization or activities undertaken by the organization

👈 Choose this option if your domain is not an exact match with your business name, although it still has a close connection to it.

If everything is correct, the domain will be registered instantly.

In some cases, choosing the Close and substantial connection option requires additional verification (documents) from your side in order to proceed with domain activation 💡

If you accidentally chose the first option within the Relationship Between the Eligibility and Domain section but your domain is not an exact match to your business name, get in touch with our Customer Success team, and we'll help you fix it 😊
