How do I cancel my .au domain name?

For regulatory reasons, we require signed confirmation that you intend to cancel/terminate your .au domain name. Before you complete and return the request, please consider the following carefully:

  • Any remaining months on your licence are immediately cancelled and are non refundable. If you cancel the domain a year into it's two year licence, the remaining year is cancelled and we are unable to compensate you for this.
  • When the termination is processed, the domain becomes available for anyone else to purchase (subject, of course, to the standard .au eligibility criteria). If you intend for the domain to be picked up by someone else in particular, you should process a change of ownership instead.

If, after considering these points, you still want to cancel your .au domain name, please contact us by raising a case in your Console or calling our support line. Please allow around 72 hours for it to be processed.
