      No ABN is required to register a direct .au domain name. You will just be asked to confirm your identity as an Australian citizen or resident before the domain name will be registered.

        Registered - your support person asked me to register and then put TBC while registering, and then email will be sent to ask for identity. I hope this works!!

        • It will work. The minimum requirement for a direct .au registration is you need to be a citizen/resident.

          • @Kyle-K: This is right. After registering the domain name as a resident or citizen, you will be sent an email asking you to confirm your identity. You can do this with a driver's license, passport or Medicare card. The process is automated, so domains will be registered instantly!

        • Just a quick update on registering as a resident or citizen. We have simplified the checkout process when purchasing a direct .au domain name so you will now be asked whether you are registering as an individual or an organisation. Hopefully this makes things a little easier for people registering direct .au domains.

    • As stated on the offer page, we are happy to beat the price of any other registrar. Just get in touch with our helpdesk!

  • As the years go on I've had more and more trouble getting people to understand the difference between a web address and doing a search just by speaking with them. It's amazing how often I've told people to go to a specific website like and they've clearly just done a search and are confused by ads that pop up at the top of the list and click on those.

    • I believe this is by design… Designed by advertisers like Google. "Just google it"
