Transfers

To be able to complete .AU domain transfers you'll need your current registrar to give you the domain's AuthCode or EPP-Key, with it you'll be able to verify your domain's ownership.

Once the transfer has started, an e-mail is sent to the email indicated in the form of transfer, the registrant has two days to accept or cancel.

Once the transfer is completed, the registration period is extended for one year from the original expiration date.


Renewals

The renewal period runs from 90 days before its expiry date to 30 days after it. When a domain is renewed, it is automatically renewed for two years (if expires on January 1, 2011 and is renewed the December 1, 2010, the domain is renewed until January 1, 2013).

Upon reaching the expiration date, domain status passes Expired Hold, the domain's DNS are deleted and can not be updated, renewed or transferred to another registrar.

If the domain is not renewed for the next 30 days after expiration, the status is Pending Purge Expired, the domain can not be updated, renewed or transferred to another registrar. The domain will be purged from the Registry during the next deletion cycle.
