Government Domain Names

Welcome to the gov.au domain administration system

This website provides information about the gov.au domain space, and links to gov.au domain registration and management services.

The gov.au domain is reserved for use by Australian, state and territory, and local government entities. More information about the gov.au domain.

As of 1 February 2018, the Digital Transformation Agency (DTA)  is managing gov.au domains on behalf of registrants.

To apply for a new gov.au domain name, please submit an application form for the appropriate jurisdiction. Note that state and territory domain providers will continue to assess applications for their jurisdiction.

To update an existing domain name (adding or removing name servers or amending Whois contact details), please submit the relevant service request form. The DTA will process service requests for all jurisdictions.

Note that domain name licences will be renewed by the DTA on behalf of registrants.
