Changes to *.org.au domain names

By .

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!
