Did you know about that the .au name space was transformed overnight with the seamless transition of 3.1 million domain names to a new registry and national domain name infrastructure? While we slept and were totally uninterrupted -what? A milestone in the development of Australia’s digital economy, and we benefit from it the most - in so many different ways!
.com.au, net.au, org.au, id.au, asn.au, edu.au, and gov.au names will be able to be registered for between one and five years. No more 2 year registration limits - woo!
A new $12 million marketing and innovation program over 4 years to increase the awareness and use of .au - yes, please!
A 10 percent reduction in wholesale fees for .au names - winning!
Move over social media, even more security with the new registry strengthening the operation and security of the .au name space so users can have confidence in the integrity and availability of .au domains - sold!
