Domain Name Registration
Securing a domain name is the first step in your online journey. A domain name is more than just your online address, it is an important part of your branding strategy, and it is vital to choose one that is a good representation of your business. With Webics, it’s easy to search for available domain names and register them instantly. We can also transfer any existing domains you have for free so you can keep all your online services under the one account.
Every Business Begins With A Great Domain Name
Your domain name is the first touchpoint for your online customers. It helps promote your products and services, gives your business an identity and makes you stand out from your competitors. The perfect domain name needs to sound like a brand yet also be credible, easy to spell, easy to remember and not too long. If you’ve got a good idea for a domain name and it is available, we suggest you secure it as soon as possible. You don’t have to use it right away, but registering it means no one else can steal it!

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need an ABN to register .com.au domains?
Not necessarily, but there are strict eligibility criteria you need to meet. To register a .com.au address you need to supply one of the following:
- ABN (Australian Business Number)
- ACN (Australian Company Number)
Should I Get a .com or a .com.au domain?
If your business is based in Australia with predominantly Australian customers, it is best to register a .com.au domain and host it on an Australian server. The .com.au extension tells your customers you are an Australian based business and that you can be trusted. This is particularly important if you are just starting out. There's nothing stopping you from registering the .com domain as well in case you wish to use it in the future.
What Can I Do If Someone Else Has The Domain Name I Want?
Not much. If a domain name has already been registered you can not apply for that domain until the registration expires. Your only option is to use the WHOIS database to access the contact information of the registrant. You can then negotiate directly with them if you are lucky enough to get a response, and they are willing.
Can I Reserve A Domain Name That Is Already Taken?
No. Your only option is to wait for the domain to expire and try to register it once it becomes available or contact the registrant via the WHOIS database.
How Many Domain Registrations Can I Have?
As many as you want as long as you meet the general eligibility guidelines.
Can I Buy A Domain Name Without A Website?
Yes. You do not have to use your domain until you want to. Webics offers a free domain parking service so you can secure your domain/s today and think about how you may want to use them in the future.
I Forgot To Renew My Domain. What Happens Now?
If you have forgotten to renew your domain you have 30 days to get it back. After your.au domain expires, there is a 30 day grace period during which you can still renew it. After this period, the domain becomes inactive and can be registered by anyone (including one of your competitors!) If your domain expires anything linked to the domain (such as a website or emails) will also cease to function until it is renewed. For your peace of mind, Webics sends out a reminder that the domain is due for renewal 90 days before the due date.
