    We're not a registrar though so don't think we're allowed on the list :)

    $19.95 is cheap though!

    Cheers,

    I think both registrars and resellers ( if they have the cheapest pricing or there will be thousands maybe) should be on that list. I cant see why accredited makes any difference. If you are a reseller you still get it from a registar who must be accredited and the registrants rights and ownership are still protected anyway so nothing to lose by using you is there.. but some dollars to save? I think all names have to come from auda.. ausregistry.. then a register or reseller anyway.. theres no way you can get a name that doesnt go through the proper process or it cant get registered?

    Are they profitable at that level or are they cross subsidising this price with other products?

    ;)

    If so - that's dangerous information a domainers forums where many people probably don't require (or won't invest in) the other products but manage large portfolios of domains.

    :D

    Not sure if the site is broken, but it seems like any domain I try to register is already taken?

    "Sorry! isthislreadytaken.com.au is already taken!" etc

    I had the same problem. And WHOIS is blacklislisted.

    Who are you reselling for? The auDA reseller tool isn't listing a registrar next to your name..

    Looks like AusRegistry lookup has been blocked again! I'll have to get onto them.

    Thanks for letting me know.

    Turns out the Whois server in WHMCS is incorrect. After speaking with AusRegistry, a different server must be used over a different port. I'll have to contact WHMCS to fix te issue as their system for registering domains is encrypted.

    Cheers,

    I've implemented a workaround until WHMCS can update their system.

    I've run a few tests and it's working fine.

    I've also asked DistributeIT to update the auDA listing :)

    Cheers,

    The site mentions $19.95 is for a limited time, just wondering what the normal price / renewal fee will be? Sorry if I have missed it somewhere obvious on the site.

    Cheers

    Hi Andy,

    Normal renewal price is currently set at $45. However, as you probably already know, you can easily transfer domains come time to renew.

    Cheers,
    Joel

    probably worth using you for the initial purchase and transfer to someone else if you dont lower your renewals.. but is it worth $4 for the time and questionable bugs?.. I suppose yes. its 20% cheaper than ventraip which is $23.95
