New rules coming to the .Au domain space


Au domain name space

Some new rules coming to the Australian domain name space. According to an article on the auDA will be putting new rules in place that go into effect on October 5, 2020. Rules apply to both new and existing domain names.

What’s changing?

Previously, an Australian trademark application or registration may constitute the required Australian presence for an .AU domain name, but the domain name need not match the trademark.

Under the new rules, a domain name registration based on an Australian trademark must exactly match the trademark. That is, the domain name is identical to and is of the same order as the words that are the subject of an Australian trademark application or registration, excluding domain name system (DNS) identifiers such as, punctuation marks, articles such as “a,” “the,” “and,” and “of,” and ”&.”
