    The fact that that the list is small and most redirects or errors is perhaps more of a point. A lot of these names are in the hands of domainers and have been for years. The fact that people even need to think up a list is a sign of that, people used to do the same with new tlds. People would say how microsoft owned console.biz and expedia owned hotels.biz and that was a great thing, when in reality it had very little meaning.

    The number of large companies actively buying .com.au's in the aftermarket is very small in my view. The only one that ever gets mentioned here is carsales.

    Thanks for the new additions! Sorry I haven't checked in here the last week or so, had a few things come up.

    I'll get these added to the list ASAP.

    Cheers guys!

    Instead of manually putting this together, you could just generate a list based on company name using IPNeighborhood.

    unsure if the list is still being updated but paints.com.au could be added to paint.com.au both redirect to dulux
