How do I transfer ownership of my .AU domain?

This article explains the process required to transfer the ownership of your .AU domain name or update the registrant details.

  • Click here to download the Change of Registrant form.
  • To change the ownership of a domain name a $125.00 fee is payable.
  • When a domain is transferred, the registrant must meet the criteria set out by auDA in their Transfers (Change of Registrant) Policy (2011-03).
  • When domain ownership is transferred, the old registrant forfeits the remaining period of the 2 year registration license, and a new 2 year registration license will start from the time the transfer is completed.

The license holder (for example a company or person) who has authority/control over a .AU domain is the ‘registrant’ as listed in the domain’s WHOIS information. The process of transferring legal ownership of a domain from one registrant to another is called “Change of Registrant” (COR).

  1. To initiate the change, you must send a completed copy of the Change of Registrant form to Please use the subject “Change of Registrant:” in the email or cover letter.
  2. Once we have verified the request we will issue an invoice for $125 to the current owner.

Complete:  After this invoice has been paid we will proceed with the Change of Registrant and the domain will be registered for two years.
