A domain for the city of Melbourne
The mission of the new .MELBOURNE gTLD (generic top-level domain) is to benefit consumers by ensuring increased trust, convenience and utility as well as strengthening the City of Melbourne's brand online.
Please note that .MELBOURNE domains can only be registered by:
- companies located in Victoria (ABN or similar needs to be provided),
- residents living in Victoria (address needs to be provided),
- or are an associated company which trades products in Victoria (must be an exact match or partial match to, or an abbreviation, or an acronym of the business name)
Then put your •melbourne to work

Your domain registration questions, answered
How does getting a domain work?
There are two pieces to this equation. First, there are domain registries that own the individual top-level domains (like Verisign, which owns .com, .net, and a few other TLDs). Then there's us, the domain registrar, which provides a big online store that houses all the TLDs in one convenient location. When you register a domain, we reserve it for you through the individual registries... like an Amazon of sorts if you were looking for an HDMI cable.
Are there any additional things I need to buy?
Nope, every domain we sell comes with all the bells and whistles attached. If the TLD supports WHOIS privacy, we turn it on automatically. If you want to transfer your domain to another registrar, we don't have any secret add-ons to keep you tied down. And we don't place any weird ads or parking pages on unused domains — we don't see that much anymore, but it was a thing companies have done in the past.
