Check out this article and video to see why .COM.AU is one of the most popular domain extensions in the world and how you can easily get your .COM.AU domain with NTC Hosting.
Why choose the .COM.AU domain?
.COM.AU is one of the most preferred TLDs on the English-speaking domain market. First, this is because most Australians and Australia-based companies and organizations prefer to use the native Australian TLD for their sites. This will guarantee them a greater recognition among the local visitors and at the same time will reinforce their Australian identity on the international market. Another way to explain why .COM.AU is so popular is to mention that many foreign business entities have found it worthwhile to target the broad-minded Australian audience.
While it is not possible to register Australian TLDs at first level (e.g. your-domain-name.AU), you can choose between two widely marketed options - .COM.AU and .NET.AU. They are both open for general use and can be registered by anyone who wants to directly associate their online presence with the Australian market. Of both, .COM.AU is currently more popular, because of its clear reference to commercial activities.
By registry rules, the domain can be registered for 2 years at a time. No other registration periods are supported to date. The domain doesn't have a lock option and can be transferred between registrars using an EPP key.
