To register a .com.au or .net.au domain you will need to provide an active ABN or ACN or a registered trademark or an incorporated association ID when ordering.
If you have an ABN for the organisation we recommend using that as it is the fastest to complete registration.
New ABN’s or recently activated ABN’s can take a day or so to show as active in the Australian ABR database. Pending ABN’s will cause a slight delay in registration of a new .au domain name.
To check the status of an ABN or ACN you can search the Australian Business Register.
For complete .au eligibility rules visit auda.org.au the .au authority.
