Australian domain name system set for sweeping changes

The board has accepted the recommendations in full which include no limit on the number of domain names per entity and the creation of a 'reserved list' for domain names that may not be licensed.

Domain names will continue to be allocated on a 'first come, first served' basis and with continued renewal periods.

The board is also seeking to remove the prohibition on generic domain names in the com.au space and will undertake further work to determine a method of allocating generic names.

The issue of geographic domain names will be considered by the board following a report on the creation of new, second-level domain names. AuDA CEO Chris Disspain said the changes will take effect in the second half of 2001 in conjunction with the introduction of competition in the domain name services market. A full report is available at http://www.auda.org.au/.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
