.au reaches 2 million domain names

08 03 2011

Domain Name regulator auDA and .au Registry operator Ausregistry today announced that Australia had 2 million .au domain names.

This is a historic achievement which places the .au domain space into the top ten domain name registrations internationally.

AusRegistry’s CEO Adrian Kinderis said:

“The .au domain has the highest penetration rate in the world for regulated namespaces with restricted eligibility when you take into account our population. The .au domain has become part of the fabric of doing business in Australia. We have seen continual strong growth in the namespace despite the global financial crisis and other market factors. .au is Australia’s domain namespace of choice and the only place to show that you are a trusted Australian,”.

Despite the massive growth in the number of domain name registrations, Australia remains one of the most regulated domain name spaces, putting it at odds with other jurisdictions such as Germany and the USA.
