    Hello BHW.

    I want to register an Australian domain, but I can't because I right now don't have residence in Australia.

    Is there a service somewhere, anywhere, that'll let me purchase an Australian domain name through someone else? It is a really stupid rule.

    You also need to have an ABN (I believe). Send me a PM, I live in aus and I might be able to help you.

    You don't need an ABN, your should be able to register one from anywhere in the world. If you are having issues, use a different registrar.

    Really? Every time I've gone to register I needed an ABN, what do you use?

    I don't think any non-aussie without ABN can order .au domains. I already tried to get one so many times last year but I can't.

    That's right. For a .com.au you need an Australian Business. Domain name also has to be the company name or acronym. They're pretty strict.
