The Domain Name I Want Is Already Registered! What Do I Do?

Domain names are registered on a first-come, first-served basis. As long as the registrant of the domain is eligible to hold the licence (if they meet all the requirements), then they can keep that name.

You can attempt to contact the owner of the domain name licence, enquiring whether they wish to transfer it to you, however they are under no obligation to do so. If you have any concerns or feel you may have an entitlement to the name you should contact the auDA for dispute resolution information for .au domains, or for other types of domain get in touch with our friendly customer support team who are happy to answer your questions here.
