Management of Internet Domain Names within the Country Code .au

This document references the applicable policies and procedures relating to the registration of Internet Domain Names within the country code .au, which is the two letter top level code for Australia used by the global Internet Domain name structure.


Newer .au policy information is available from the auDA Policy page and auDA Domains page.


AUNIC has archived its Old policy page (from approximately 2002).

Some notes describing the Internet Domain Name structure, together with a short tutorial on how to configure a domain zone file are here.

The structure of the .au domain space is as follows:

Each subdomain of .au has been delegated to a designated authority, who is responsible for the administration of the policies applicable for registration within that domain. The following notes list these domain administrators and the relevant policies of registration of a name within that domain.
