Expired domains

A domain name with the Status of ‘clientHold’ has usually expired. When your domain name is in clienthold status it will no longer work on the internet. This is because it is suspended at the registry until a renewal order has been placed.

If the domain name is not renewed within a period (usually within 40 days of the expiry date) the registry will remove the domain name will be placed into the redemptionPeriod status or deleted entirely.

A reactivation fee of $98 AUD will apply in addition to the renewal fee for expired domains.


Before you start

Our prices include all administrative and registry fees for the number of years you are registered with us. Furthermore, every domain name registered with us comes with:

  • FREE Domain Parking
  • FREE Management Tools
  • FREE Renewal Reminder

Even if you don’t have a website, you can still reserve as many domains as you’d like – however there are certain rules and regulations for some domain name types.

There are no ongoing fees during the registration period – once you have registered your domain name, it is yours providing you pay the renewal every period it is due – generally each year.

The domain name comes as is. If you require a website or email addresses for your domain, you will need to purchase a cloud hosting plan.

Although there are no limits to how many domain names you can register, you should remember that it is your responsibility to make sure that you do not infringe the rights of any other company or individual. If you register a brand name or company name which belongs to another company as a domain name, we reserve the right to cancel the registration.
