Description

How does the bulk transfer of .au domain names work?

As part of our platform upgrade, we will be consolidating all .AU domain names onto CentralNic’s state-of-the-art reseller system. As part of this upgrade we will be transferring in bulk all .au domain names to the Domain Directors - A CentralNic owned registrar.

In the coming weeks, we will be contacting all .AU domain name registrants via their registrant email address located in the WHOIS to notify them that we will be transferring all .AU domain names to the Domain Directors accreditation.

What domains are affected?

All .com.au, .net.au, .org.au, .asn.au, and .id.au domain names.

Will you be contacting my clients?

Yes. As per auDA policy, in order to make a bulk change to the registrar of record, the current registrar must contact each registrant to notify them of the change and provide them with the option to opt out. We always try to avoid contacting your customers wherever possible however in this instance it is not possible due to the auDA policy.

Will these emails be whitelabelled with my brand and contact details?

Unfortunately, auDA will not allow whitelabel emails as this is strictly a message from the registrar (us) to the registrant (your customer). However, if your customers have any questions, we will redirect them to you.

Can I see a copy of the email you will be sending?

Yes. You can view the email here.

Please feel free to reach out to your customers to advise them of this upcoming email in advance.

When will these emails be sent?

We expect to send these emails in approximately two week’s time however we will update you here once the date is confirmed.

Will the registrar of record change?

Yes. The new registrar of record for all .AU domain names will be: Domain Directors. The new WHOIS record will look similar to this after the change:
