Registering Your Domain Name
Visit the chosen registrar’s website and navigate to their domain registration section. Enter your chosen domain name, select the desired extension, and click the “Search” or “Check Availability” button. The registrar will display the search results, indicating whether your chosen domain name is available or already taken. If it’s available, you’ll be directed to the registration process. During registration, you’ll need to provide accurate contact details, including your name, address, email, and phone number. This information is essential for domain ownership and management. Select the registration duration for your domain. You can typically choose between one and ten years. Some registrars may offer discounts for longer registration periods.
Registrars often offer additional services, such as privacy protection (to keep your contact information private), email hosting, or website hosting. You can choose to add these services or proceed with the domain registration only.
Before finalizing your registration, review your order summary, including the domain name, extension, registration duration, and any added services. Ensure all details are accurate, and then proceed to checkout.
Enter your payment information and complete the payment process. You’ll receive a confirmation email with details about your domain registration.
Registering a .au domain often requires additional verification, usually in the form of an Australian Business Number (ABN) for individuals and Australian Company Number (ACN) for registered companies.
