Transferring .au domains is free and can be renewed at the standard yearly price once transfer has completed. Other domains require renewal on transfer & expiry date will be extended for another year. An example of transferring your domain registration would be if you have your domain registered with Godaddy and wanted to transfer domain registration from Godaddy to us, so that when your domain name is due for renewal, you would renew the domain rego with us and not Godaddy. Please note you don't have to have your domain registered with us to have your hosting with us. Several of our clients will have their domain registered with another company and have their hosting for that domain with us. You don't lose any existing registration time when transferring domains.
Please note .au domains take 48hrs to complete transfer, domain renewal is not included when transferring .au domains. Other domains take approximately 7 days. .au domains require a confirmation email to the domain contact email at the Registrar with a link that needs to be clicked to initiate the transfer. During transfer DNS and nameservers cannot be updated until transfer is completed.*
