HI there.

I badly want to register a .com.au domain. But you know it is not possible/easy as I am not living in Australia.So I don't have those numbers Like Australian BUsiness number, Company number etc. required to register a com.au domain.

Is there any way I bypass those requirements & register on .com.au? Will it be illegal later if I get a Buyer?

For now, I know, one of my friends who lives in AU & has those numbers,can register one for me in Namecheap & transfer me. But the contact details will be unchanged until i pay 40 USD.

Or I can make him opening a new account with all his contact & ID numbers by my email contact & then transfer the domain in my account.

My question is, is there any other easier way & can I face any legal issue by doing so?
