    With the imminent implementation of direct .au registration coming into effect later this year made me think whether there are people out there currently approaching the .net.au (or .com.au, id.au etc) holders regarding the purchasing of names to increase their chances of owning the .au domain outright. Is anyone already implementing this tactic?

    My other question is, will a COR change of registrant info for a domain reset the initial registration date of that domain, & void that persons eligibility status (priority category 1 status)

    Just remember these names are going to be worthless or close to. For example Sedo has only had 1 .uk in the last 12 months months for $102 versus 99 sales in .co.uk totalling $282,000.

    No matter what ridiculous fighting goes on for these names keep in the back of your mind that it is a fight over fools gold and they only time they will have any value is the point of initial release..

    Over one million .Uk names to be available ....... um there was a reason they were never claimed by the .co.uk holders

    Does anyone know whether the creation date of a domain name stays the same when bought by another party & after a COR has been performed?

    I’m sure that strong one word .com.au/net.au names will be of interest to business. Surely negotiations are happening..

    Hi Cherie

    May I ask why you feel the need to inform your clients now? Personally I wouldn’t do this, as things still needs sorting out by auDA
