Frequently asked questions

Domains

Are your staff based in Australia?

Yes. Everyone at GO Creative is based in Brisbane, aside from the technical engineers who manage our data centres across Australia. We don’t outsource any of our work offshore.

When you reach out to us for support, you’ll always deal with a member of our local team.

Can we transfer our domains to GO Creative?

Absolutely. There’s no fee involved to transfer your domains to us. The current expiry date of the domain remains intact as well, so if it’s not due to expire for another year, for example, that will still be the case after the transfer is complete.

The process to transfer a domain is:

  1. We arrange for a domain password (also known as a “registry key” or “auth info”, among other things) to be sent to the email address registered with the domain (which should be you).
  2. You provide the password to us.
  3. We use that password to initiate the transfer, through our domain management system.
  4. You receive an email asking you to confirm the transfer. You click the link, and the the transfer begins.
  5. Most Australian (.AU) domain names transfer in exactly 48 hours. Other domains vary from instantly to up to a week.

Once a domain transfer is underway, it can’t be cancelled, though the domain can be transferred again later.

Important: You will always remain the registrant (owner) of the domain, regardless of which company manages it for you.

How often are domains renewed?

All .AU domains must be renewed for two years at a time — this is a requirement from the Australian Domain Administration. Most other extensions are renewed annually, though there are some exceptions. We therefore send out renewal invoices on that same schedule, depending on the domain in question. We send the invoices out well in advance, to give you ample time to make your payment.

What are your support hours?

We’re available 8.30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. You can phone us on (07) 3333 2932 or submit a support request and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. We have an emergency contact number (provided to existing clients only) for critical issues outside of our normal hours.

Which domains should our business register?

If you’re an Australian business, the .com.au domain is a no-brainer. You should also look at registering the same domain name with .com, .net, and .net.au. This helps ensure your competitors can’t register those domains. Beyond that, it’s really up to you how far you want to go with protecting your brand.

Who is eligible for .AU domains?

To register any domain ending in .AU, you must have an ABN. This could be as a sole trader, company, trust, or any other formal entity. The domain you register must be closely related to your business name, or the products and services you offer.
