The .AU Transition Is Now Complete
We would like to inform you that the transition of .AU to Afilias is now complete.
You may now register or renew any Australian ccTLD for your choice of 1-5 years and the updated pricing mentioned in previous communications is now live.
Please note that as a result of this transition, all EPP Codes have been reset at the Registry-level and as such may take up to 48 hours to be synced. You may also experience a delay of up to 48 hours when processing the transfer of an Australian ccTLD between Registrars.
A final reminder that any Australian ccTLDs due for deletion will not be purged by the Registry for at least 14 days in an effort to help mitigate any unexpected problems as a result of this transition.
Should you experience any issues with an Australian ccTLD within your account, please submit a Support Request at your earliest convenience and a member of our team will investigate as soon as possible.
