    auDA Sponsorship Agreement with ICANN

    4.3 ccTLD Registry Data Escrow.

    The escrow agent or mirror-site operator shall be mutually approved by the Governmental Authority and the Sponsoring Organization and shall not be under the Sponsoring Organization's control.
    • the whois information for auDA.ltd is registered under auDA’s name [the sponsoring organisation].
    Is this a contravention of ICANN’s sponsorship provision?

    Quick FYI - I've renamed the thread topic to make the content a bit clearer.

    Can everyone believe this, a ccTLD registry actually registers a gTLD from another registry to use for their own nations whois?

    Why not use.
    Whois.org.au
    It belongs to auDA

    My stomach hurts from laughing...honestly.

    Question to all techies.

    Is it simple to correct this whois from whois.auDA.tld to whois.org.au

    It doesn't require transition or anything huge, right?

    It would have been trivial last week or last month. It is still relatively easy from a technical perspective but as the URL becomes more and more indexed it starts to hurt from a reputation perspective.

    As Josh points out IANA has not been updated yet so maybe now is a good time to fix it to match the Final Technical Specification which is published at the links below.
    https://www.auda.org.au/industry-information/registry/registry-transformation-project-2017/
    https://www.auda.org.au/assets/Uplo...tions-final-version-1-September-2017-v3.1.pdf
    2.4.1. Registry - provided Registration Data Directory Service
    The registry operator will operate a WHOIS service available via port 43 in accordance with RFC 3912 – WHOIS Protocol Specification, and a web - based Registration Data Directory Service at <whois.org.au > providing free public query - based access.

    Those IP addresses are for DNS servers. They do not respond on port 80 so you cannot go to them in a browser which is what I assume you are doing.

    To query them you need to use a command called dig (domain information grope) here is a grope of r.au (65.22.197.1) telling us what drop.com.au name servers are.
    dig @r.au drop.com.au
    ; <<>> DiG 9.9.5-9+deb8u15-Debian <<>> @r.au drop.com.au
    ; (2 servers found)

    Yes. There are still only 2 pages indexed by google but basically you would 301 your TLD and point the nameservers of org.au at the servers where your data is being hosted... so Canada :)
