Upcoming Changes To The .AU domain names
On the 1st of July, Australia’s online space will be going through its first big shakeup in more than a decade, changing the way you register, renew, and manage your Aussie domain names (.COM.AU, .ID.AU, etc).
Here’s everything you should know to help prepare for the upcoming changes in the Australian online space.
After more than 15 years of championing Australia’s online space, AusRegistry will be passing the digital flame over to one of the largest registry operators in the world, Afilias.
Afilias is the world’s second-largest domain name registry, managing more than 20 million domains across dozens of different extensions.
As a part of this transition, multi-year registration periods will be made available for all Australian country code top-level domains (ccTLDs), giving you the freedom to register or renew any domain name that ends in ‘.au’ for your choice of 1-5 years.
Availability of this feature will be dependant on your domain name provider.
As Afilias has committed to reducing the fees associated with the registration and renewal of all Australian ccTLD domain names.
