Stay away from Domainnames.com.au!!!!
Warning to anyone who has been sucked in to this company or is thinking about registering with them. You can not speak to them on the phone and the only person that responds to the phone is the most arrogant and obnoxious pig who will just laugh at you and tell you nothing!!!. ADVICE...FIND ANOTHER DOMAIN MANAGER AND GET THEM TO TAKE OVER THE MANAGEMENT OF YOUR DOMAIN NAME

do not touch these guys.
They automatically bill you, without warning, and refuse to give your money back.
Then they refuse to even let you cancel your account. once you have signed up there is no way out.

The most disgraceful company and individuals I have ever come across. The most unhelpful rude and antagonising individuals. One employee rang my phone continuously and harassed me, then told me a 6 year old would know how to interact with the site. Stay clear, these guys are embarrassing.

There needs to be something done. Hundreds of bad reviews yet this company is still trading. Google on Facebook the horror stories. More people the better. Bully tactics and holding companies ransom when sites are fully paid for, domain names and websites are important tools for any company so if your reading this do not use this company as you will regret it. Wish we had of looked a bit harder first but if we can help someone else from making the same mistake it's all worth while. If you know someone that has a story join in Facebook also.

I have NEVER come across such an unhelpful, rude, condescending, arrogant company in my life. I have qualifications in accounting, I speak a foreign language fluently and I run a couple of small businesses. I wear many hats and I am proficient in many things but unfortunately web hosting and the jargon associated with it is not one of them. If you do not speak their speak, this mob will treat you as if you are a complete and utter idiot.

What an absolute disgrace this company is. Their so called HELP / Service department are rude arrogant and harassed me over the weekend even though their opening hours are Mon - Fri 9-5. Then their complaints division manager Sasha took over and she was just as unprofessional. Read their policies as they can take away your domain name at the drop of a hat

rudest customer service I have ever had to deal with.
This company is just way TOO much hard work.

I had an email forwarding issue. Firstly Domainnames.com.au were unable to investigate the cause of my suddne ceasation of receiving emails (depsite it having worked for years). Then one staff memberof Domainnames.com.au informed me that if I purchased one of their POP email accounts, I could have my email stored on that rather than forwarded. I therefore purchased an email POP account which supposedly which was reduced in price by 70%!!! , and yet not one staff member could assist me in linking this POP email account to the Domain hosting account I already held with them.They have no phone support, and the staff on the web-based support were rude and dismissive when I was trying seek assistance.

Rudest, most unhelpful, fraudulent
The "support" staff at domainnames are not only incredibly rude, they are incredibly fraudulent. They have charged my credit card for a domain name that wasn't even registered with them!

Now I have to go through small claims tribunal to sort it out.

AVOID THEM!

Their new interface is lumpy to say the least. Currently not supported by Firefox 4, IE 8 & 9, Chrome or Safari.

Their Certificates are bad or non-existent.

Their automated Tech Support is frustrating. However I came across a human technician and Jim was great.

Finally found contact details on the site.

They appear to no longer offer .au domains

Mike James from customer support is so rude and arrogant! I am a first time user of domain names in general and didn't know the jargon. What could have been explained and resolved in 2 seconds, lead to the following conversation:
ME: Could you please contact my brother as he needs to discuss a matter with you in relation to our domain name?
MIKE: Whats the issue you are in need of help for?
ME: My brother purchased two domain names on the 16th december called "xxx.com and xxx.com.au".
Since we have found that xxx.com is taken by another company, we expected this to be in a parked status and not actually being used if we were able to purchase it. We also found that when we go to check availability of xxx.com.au it is in fact available, so we are a little confused as to what is happening with this.
My brother has paid for both these domains and was hoping to start up these websites, however both are not operational.
Could you please reimburse him for both domains as soon as [read more...]

The support department at domainnames.com.au are the rudest most unhelpful customer service department I have ever come across.
I am transferring my name to another provider to host and will Never use or recommend these people! The emails I received from there people basically inferred I was an idiot!
You can't even complain to a person as no phone number anywhere on site! I have never come across such bad customer service !

Customer support was completely undhelpful and extremely rude. I was lured in with a cheap deal and when it expired prices went up drastically.
