YOURNAME.ID.AU Eligibility and Allocation Rules

The ID.AU 2nd Level Domain Name is for Australian Individuals. By registering an domain name Australian individuals are fully represented on the web. A domain name enables individuals to create a personal email address that can follow them anywhere and remain theirs for life*. Equally, it enables Australian Citizens to set up their personal website, email application or a blog.

* Note: Licence renewal for all domain names is every 2 years.

Why should I register an domain name?

Let’s put it straight: Your domain name is your ID.

There are 2 main reasons why registering an .ID.AU domain name:

  1. A domain name indicates that the Registrant is Australian and an Individual.
  2. By registering a domain name the Registrant will reserve their own personal place in the virtual world.

The following rules are to be read in conjunction with the Eligibility and Allocation Rules for All Open 2LDs, contained in Schedule A:

  1. To be eligible for a domain name in the 2LD, registrants must be:
    1. an Australian citizen;
    2. or  an Australian resident.
  2. Domain names in the 2LD must:
    1. exactly match the registrant’s personal name; or
      1. be an acronym or abbreviation of the registrant’s personal name; or
      2. be otherwise closely and substantially connected to the registrant, because the domain name:
        1. is derived from one or more words of the registrant’s personal name; or
        2. includes one or more words of the registrant’s personal name; or
        3. is a personal name by which the registrant is known.

Your domain name is your ID.
