When you’re applying for a new job or trying to get new business clients, first impressions count. That’s why more and more people are choosing to register their own domain name and get a professional-looking email address and website.
It’s important to secure your domain name before someone else does – it’s a first-in-best-dressed basis, don’t miss out!
Imagine having your own domain like michaelsmith.id.au or emmajonesphotography.com.au or even richmondhair.net.au.

Frequently asked questions
What is .id.au domain type – is it new?
For many years, you’ve seen domain names like com.au, net.au, and org.au – however few Australians realise that they can also take full advantage of id.au to secure their online presence.
com.au – for companies
org.au – for organisations
id.au – for individuals
To be eligible for an id.au domain name, you must be an Australian citizen or an Australian resident. Your domain name should exactly match your personal name or an acronym or an abbreviation of your personal name or otherwise closely and substantially connected to you, like for example a nickname which you are commonly known by.
Can I get more than one domain?
Even if you don’t have a website, you can still reserve as many domains as you’d like to protect your identity. If you have more than one domain, you can redirect the other domain names to your primary domain.
What is hosting?
If you want a website or email for your domain, you will need to purchase web hosting. If you don’t choose hosting, the domain name will just be a link which you can use to redirect emails to other domains or to another email address.
Domain – like the street address where you live, so people can find you
Hosting – like the building where you store all of your stuff
