Vic, this makes no sense.

There is no reason why a website can't be hosted in australia using a .com
that has been delegated to a local ISP.

In fact the name servers could be run out of the USA and the sitre hosted

There is *absolutely no* reason why name services and hosting services and
for that matter email services need even be in the same country.
