Changes to *.org.au domain names
The auDA is changing the rules about who’s allowed to have a
.org.au domain name, and forcing everyone to register an association if they want to keep their domain. I’ve had
archives.org.au for over a decade, and have used it for my email address for lots of that time. So I must admit to being a bit annoyed! If it wasn’t for the fact that I have one of these domain names, I’d probably be pretty supportive of the move — I like the idea that domain names are for different purposes (for example, I love the fact that Australians can have personal
.id.au domain names).
So, I’m going to register something called “ArchivesWiki Inc.” and see if I can keep the name!
Or maybe I’ll just turn it all off. Seems easier!
