How do I transfer my .AU domain to a new owner?

This article will explain the process required to transfer the ownership of your domain name or update the registrant details.

  • Click here to access our Change of Registrant Form
  • To change the ownership of a domain name a $149.00 fee is payable.
  • When a domain is transferred, the registrant must meet the criteria set out by auDA in their Transfers (Change of Registrant) Policy (2011-03).
  • When domain ownership is transferred, the old registrant forfeits the remaining period of the 2 year registration license, and a new 2 year registration license will start from the time the transfer is completed.

The license holder (for example a company or person) who has authority/control over a .AU domain is the ‘registrant’ as listed in the domain’s WHOIS information. The process of transferring legal ownership of a domain from one registrant to another is called “Change of Registrant” (COR).

1. To initiate the change, you must complete the form at openconnect.com.au/cor

2. You will receive a confirmation email from us asking you to provide authentication to prove ownership of the domains.

3. We will generate an invoice for the change of registrant. Once the invoice is paid please let us know by replying to your ticket and we will complete the change.

4. We will send you through a confirmation email once the domain has been updated.
