.au

This year Australia will have it's own top level domain.

And in the coming years .com.au and .net.au may become a kind of relic of the past as .au becomes the new standard.

For example in September 2022 carsales.com.au will most likely be re-branded carsales.au

Or the National Bank website which is now at nab.com.au will be moved to nab.au

The good news is that if you currently hold any type of AU domain name you will have priority access to registering the .au equivalent.

As the current owner of computerjazz.com.au we now have priority access to computerjazz.au

This priority access is granted to any of the following TLDs:

.com.au
.net.au
.org.au
.asn.au
.id.au
.edu.au

How do I get my .au?

If you have an eligible .au domain name and it is registered with computerjazz we can look after the entire process for you!

Just log into your computerjazz account and click domain names to view what .au domains you already have.

Then contact us and ask us to obtain the new .au domain extension for each domain name you want the .au version of.

We will then check the eligibility of your domain name/s, make sure that your WHOIS information (ABN/ACN etc) is correct, and then place a priority access order for you.

Log in to your account at www.computerjazz.net to check your domain names now.

How much do you charge to negotiate and register my new .au for me?

$25.00 inc. GST per each successful .au domain name registration.

Renewals will then be at our usual com.au price which is currently $14.95 per year.

(We are much cheaper than most other domain name registrants in the .au space.)

What if I have groovy.net.au and someone else has groovy.com.au?

Priority access goes to whoever registered their *.au presence first. If they registered groovy.com.au before you registered groovy.net.au then they have first priority.

Of course they still have to apply for their .au before the priority cut off date! If they don't apply then you get to own groovy.au

When is the priority application cut off date for .au?

24 September 2022

What if I want a .au domain name but do not have an eligible com.au or other eligible domain?

If you want to register aussieaussie.au but do not currently have aussieaussie.com.au you can try and register aussieaussie.com.au

That will then give you priority access to aussieaussie.au but remember that if someone has already registered aussieaussie.net.au they will have first dibs.

Also, after 24 September 2022, anyone can register a .au domain name that has not been picked up through the priority access period.

If I have a .com.au domain registered with someone else i.e. crazydomains.com.au can I still get you to look after the .au application for me?

If you transfer your domain name to computerjazz then we can look after the entire process for you. See the Domain Transfer option on our website.

Otherwise content me and I will happily advise.

What If I have any other question about this whole .au thing?

Contact us and we will do our best to answer and advise.
