Australian Domain Name

Netfleet Australia is an Australia domain which is the internet's biggest selection of com.au domain name for sale in Australia. So, Australians has now the opportunity to create their own domain . You can make an offer on the spotlight domain names that they have listed on their website .

The com.au investment market is similar to the .com market fro many years ago so it's a great chance for those who missed the boat to get in & profit from lateral thinking and smart buys


Press Release:
Internet gold rush is on.

A major shift in policy from auDA, Australia's domain name regulator has lead to an explosion in .au domain name trading.

Effective from 1st June 2008, the change means that Australians can now buy and sell domain names for profit resulting in a boom in virtual real estate speculation.

Domain names are the backbone of the internet and often aptly described as virtual real estate. Indeed, thousands of domainers around the world make their living from these online properties by buying, selling and even renting to people and businesses that have a connection to the domain name

Now, with this new legislation, the industry has arrived in Australia with a bang. The prospect of turning a $30 registration fee into a 6 figure sale is probably consigned to history but one thing is sure, with 1.2 million .au domain names already registered, supply of premium domains becomes tighter and tighter leading to a surge in domain name valuations.

www.netfleet.com.au is the leading website to have emerged with a focus on Australian domains with nearly 6,000 .au domains listed. It currently lists several sales so far including photographers.com.au for $5,000 and pwc.com.au for $10,450. Still current auctions include business.com.au with an asking price of $1,000,000 and hobart.com.au drawing a bid of $25,000.

With less than 5 months since the dawn of this new type of investment, the .au domain aftermarket has experienced a tremendous start and it's only a matter of time until we can expect to see the first of the dot com dot au millionaires.
