Domain Registration Only  (Domain Parking)
Domain Registration Only enables customers to have their domain name registered and parked at Blue Skies Unlimited until they are ready to do something with it. Later it can be upgraded to set up a web site or to set up mail boxes for staff.

Blue Skies Unlimited Parking Charge: $120 per year, plus the usual domain registration costs

For example, a .com.au domain will cost $80 every two years. This covers the registration and licence cost for 2 years.1.

  • This service is ideal for customers who want to secure their domain name and park it until they are ready to do something with it.
  • A parked domain name can also be used to host a second domain name - which in turn has the www reference pointed to an existing domain name. For example: www.skies.com may be parked and the www reference pointed at www.skies.com.au
