The .au Domain Administration (auDA) board has approved the final recommendations for its naming policies, clearing the way for significant changes to the Australian domain name system (DNS).
The board has accepted in full the recommendations, 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. See www.auda.org.au
