Is there a way to find the expiration date of a ".id.au" domain? I can't seem to find any information on any .id.au domain I search on.

Have you tried doing a whois? Can you give us a sample URL? – John Conde Oct 18 '10 at 11:52
Sure - id.au is meant for people (ausregistry.com.au/id.php) - so try things like "smith.id.au" – Brad Leach Oct 18 '10 at 21:22

whois.audns.net.au, the WHOIS server for .au domains, doesn't support the expiration date information.

Even the public WHOIS hides this information.

Interesting - so is the only way to find this information by contacting the registry? – Brad Leach Oct 18 '10 at 21:24
Yes, assuming they will disclose it to you. – Simone Carletti Oct 18 '10 at 22:37
first sign up at crazydomains.com.au then search domian you can back Order by pay money – B Ravanbakhsh Jul 12 '13 at 12:34

I did a whois search on bob.id.au and it seems like the id.au domain names don't show expiration in their whois records. This may be a cool way to do things and prevent spam.

I would contact a registrar that handles these by phone to get more insight.
