Direct Registration of Domain Names in Australia

Finally, what is called direct registration of domain names is coming to Australia.

See https://www.auda.org.au/statement/australias-internet-domain-growing-get-ready-getyourau

This will allow registrations such as swinson.au and telstra.au, without the .com part of the domain name.

This arose out of the work of the 2017 Policy Review Panel, of which I chaired.  See Paper and website.

New Domain Name Rules for Australia

A new set of rules for .au domain names will come into effect on 12 April 2021.

auDA, the domain name regulator, states:  "This new licensing framework helps maintain trust in the .au ccTLD, offers clearer guidance for registrants and registrars, and enhances auDA’s role as the guardian of a key piece of Australia’s digital infrastructure."

The new rules consolidate the more than 30 policies and guidance notes that currently govern the .au domain and consist of two key documents:

.au Domain Administration Rules: Licensing - The terms and conditions for .au domain name licences including the complaints and dispute resolution processes.

.au Domain Administration Rules: Registrar - Rules for companies providing .au domain name registration services that have been accredited by auDA.

The new licensing rules are based closely on the current rules but contain some changes that may impact a small number of registrants. You can read about these changes on our new website.  These new rules were not reviewed by the Policy Review Panel.

Launch dates are yet to be set for id.au namespace, .au namespace and Internationalised Domain Names.

.au Domain Names - Policy Review

auDA has constituted a policy review panel to review virtually all domain name policies in Australia, as well as to recommend a policy to implement direct registration in Australia.  I am chair of this policy review panel.

See https://www.auda.org.au/policies/panels-and-committees/2017-policy-review-panel/

I strongly urge you to review the issues papers and to provide feedback.

Direct registration will allow registration of domain names in Australia such as cyberspace.au.

There are other reforms being discussed.  See the Issues Paper that was published at the end of January.
