.au Domain Review

The Federal government is undertaking a review of the management of the .au domain to ensure it remains fit for purpose in serving the needs of Australians online.

CAUDIT’s submission to this review is available here along with 13 other public submissions.  The government expects to report outcomes of the review to the Minister for Communications in early 2018.

Have your say on the future of .au

Why is this important?

The .au namespace is a critical piece of Australia’s digital infrastructure and the way it’s managed has wide ranging effects on the economy. It’s not just part of the websites and email addresses we use, it affects crucial services ranging from medical devices to the apps on your phone.

The .au namespace is one of the most trusted in the world and we want to make sure it stays that way while helping move Australia’s digital economy forward. auDA’s Policy Review Panel needs to hear from you to ensure that the .au namespace continues to benefit the entire Australian community.
