.au domain’s raise standards
The .au Domain Administration is making a mandatory security standard that if potential registrars want to do business them they have to comply. The auDA board has been asked to review their regulations that they are putting on the Australian domain names industry. According to the panel they are also putting some more factors into consideration:
• The best method for selecting and appointing a registry operator prior to the expiry of the current contract with AusRegistry Pty Ltd on 30 June 2014;
• The accreditation of registrars, particularly with respect to overseas-based registrars; and
• The status of resellers in .au and the possibility of permitting bulk reseller transfers and the listing of resellers in WHOIS.
