What's The Cheapest .COM.AU Domain Accredited Registrars You Use to Park Your Domains?

Am with Zuver but they are merging back with their parent (VentraIP). Need a local Aussie company that can park .com.au domains with similar (cheap) renewals.

So far could only find Host Matrix at $10.50/yr which is similar to Zuver. Next up would be comauhost.

What company are you using for your parked Aussie domains?

    Australian domains are a total rip-off and you have to have an ABN to get one.. which is an utterly ridiculous red tape requirement and results in so many people setting up inactive ABNs simply to get a domain.

    Try and get a non Australian domain.

      And nearly every .com domain is camped by name squatters…

      Shrug.
      It puts a mild level of effort into domain squatting, with the outcome that names are more readily available than in places where there is no such hassle.
      It’s a pretty good balance.

      I mean, you could go back to when Robert Elz was running it (good on kre for doing so much to keep some integrity in the early com.au name space).

    RIP Zuver.

    I don't know what they charge, but avoid Netregistry like the plague. I'm sticking with VentraIP for now, don't need to split hairs over a few dollars per year.

    There is also Hostmate https://hostmate.com.au/ for $11/yr, which I believe shares the same parent company as Host Matrix and Comauhost

      They should consider changing their parent company name to something more digital related. Doesn't instill much confidence when it's sounding like a surf shop.

        "Hostmate" meaning hosting mate

      Onlydomains it is then, thank you!

    Did they not recently announce a massive audit of .com.au and forcing some to be closed recently?

    does these domain sites all come with email forward alias?

      You'll need to purchase web or email hosting if you want emails
