Domain Name – As part of the registry transformation project in the .au name space, from 1 July 2018, registrants will be able to choose 1 to 5 year domain name registrations terms. The change was recommended by successive Policy Panels, and subsequently approved by the auDA Board. Many other names spaces allow variable registration periods, for instance .com domains can be registered or renewed from 1 to 10 years. 1 to 5 year registrations in the .au domain space will be welcomed, in our case the ability to renew our domain name for up to 5 years is appealing, while someone registering a domain name for a business idea or specific project may choose to opt for a 1 year term.
Variable registration terms also give impetus to the argument that change of registrants / COR for should allow the new registrant to receive the remainder of the unexpired term, particularly where registrants elect to choose 5 year registrations.
