Those of you who operate your own websites might be interested to know that a process is underway to make substantial changes to the .au domain.
.au Domain Administration (auDA) – the policy and regulatory body for .au domain space – has announced the commencement of public consultations for the introduction of Direct Registration.
A Policy Review Panel has been convened that will first examine and then make recommendations on how to best implement the policy of Direct Registration. One of the most pressing issues currently at play is how to give priority to current .au domain holders over new domain names.
The NRA encourages any member who feels that they may be affected by changes that may result from the implementation of Direct Registration to view the issues paper at www.auda.org.au/PRP. Submissions can be emailed to email@example.com and close on Friday 10 November 2017.
