ICANN-REGISTRAR:Order your Australian domain|
someone else does it!
Since July 1 2002 there are new rules for Australian domain names:
The com.au-domain is still restricted to Australian Companies, but also a foreign company licenced to trade in
Australia, an owner or applicant of an Australian Registered Trade Mark are entiteled to com.au-domain.
rules have also changed since July 1 2002:The domain names must be identical
with the companies name or the trade marks, but can also be an acronym or abbreviation of the business name or trademark.
And it is also sufficient, that the domain names are otherwise closely and substantially connected to the registrant, because they
refer to a product, service, an event, an activity, a venue or a profession of the registrant.
Since July 1 2002 also one important rule has changed: The number of domain names per applicant is no longer
limited. In other words: You can register as many domain names as you want or need.
