AU domain registrations

From the 24th of March, 2022, the new domain name extension .AU will be available for you to register right here at diskmandotnet as a semi-managed service.

.au is the all-new direct domain name extension for the Australian domain namespace. It will allow any business, organisation or individual with a connection to Australia the ability to register a .au direct domain name, like for their business, product range, personal use.

To take advantage of the priority registration, it’s really important to understand so we’ve explained it in more detail below (check the auDA links) but in short, if you already own the exact match for your domain name eg then you will be allowed with priority to register There will be an issue if for example, someone else owns as you will both qualify to register the new extension.

So get onto it ASAP!!!
