What will .au change for you?




Commencing 24th March, Australians can obtain a simpler slice of the internet for their hosting needs. The .au Direct top level domain (TLD) will be available to existing domain holders for priority application of their domain name, or new customers for available domain names. Get your .au through Micron21.

.au will become the new standard in trust for the home of all things Australian online.

Existing Customers

We encourage all our customers to secure this new domain, especially for brand protection.

Existing .au TLD customers can apply for priority status through Micron21. The priority status period will run for six month from the 24th March. There are some rules around allocation of .au direct names, especially if someone else uses the same name but with a different TLD e.g. org.au while you hold the .com.au. auDA’s rules on the priority allocation is provided below, however, we are available to assist if you have questions on this.

There will be more information provided to domain holders closer to the launch date on how to apply for your new .au.

New Customers

All new and available names will be ready for purchase on the 24th of March. However, we recommend purchasing a .au domain now to secure priority status in case it gets snapped up.

We anticipate that the .au direct domain will become the standard for Australian websites and domains.
