    If everyone keeps talking negatively about it, and telling everyone to stop buying .com.au names, what do you expect?

    We are still getting sales and still getting interest from end users, and we do not anticipate for this to stop. The only thing that has tanked is the domain investor interest, which means that names that are dropping can be picked up for lot less than ever before, so great time to buy now.

    Cheers
    David

    In my view auDA adding uncertainty and draconian policy proposals is what is effecting the market.

    Couple of points,

    1. For anyone investing in the space there is the prospect of the end to the monetisation rule. My reading of that is that if auDA and the PRP get their way people will need to go back to the old days of having matching business names, matching company names etc (anyone disagree with that assessment? it is how it looks to me).

    2. The other thing is direct registrations, people can see what has happened to the .co.uk market, the uncertainty will hang around for a long period of time, confusion etc.

    Point 1 won't effect enduser demand but it will send holding costs dramatically higher. Point 2 will effect the enduser market and it will effect holding costs as well. So it is squeezing the market from both ends and that is why wholesale prices have fallen so heavily.

    Lastly I would congratulate Trellian for saying it as it is. This is a company people should be supporting instead of those who take our money (e.g. Netfleet/MelbourneIT, Ventraip) then try to skewer domainers via branch stacking and name calling. If you have domains registered at those other companies think about moving them to a company that supports domain investor such as Trellian.

    Thank you Paul,

    The monetization rule as far as I am under the impression is going to stay. Key people there do not want it gone either. It took too long to get in the first place to be removed. Besides you can now renew a domain for 5 years so you will have for $50 a solution that lasts 5 years if something crazy does happen as they will allow existing domains to be monetized..

    direct reg, at Above, we have similar sales volumes and values for .co.uk names before and after .uk. So we have not seen much of a change to the end user market. Granted .uk was done one way, and we are not sure how .au will be done if at all. So hard to compare actual versus future unknown... but right now the talk of direct reg is not affecting end user pricing and will not for years to come.

    As domain investors, sure fight the battle, but knowing the above, I see no reason why the industry can not keep chugging along while key changes/decisions are sought to be made.

    Cheers
    David

    The market is flat because the management of auDA is having a direct negative impact upon the .au Market.

    According to Dreamscape the .au Market is Flat. Dreamscape advised the Market at its AGM the domain registration market and hosting in the Australian Market has been flat with no industry growth since the start of the financial year 2017. This has continued in the November to January 2018 period. Their half-yearly report goes onto say; while the Crazy Domain Brand in Australia continues to increase its total .au domain market share, the industry as a whole has been flat. Read Here

    Growth coming from acquisitions. Offsetting flat domain industry in Australia.
    i.e. whilst this negative market sentiment [created by auDA] continues, Dreamscape will pursue growth through major registrar acquisitions. ;) [No wonder Dreamscape wants to rig the vote]

    I haven't heard this David, and the latest PRP minutes stating they want to repeal it,

    https://www.auda.org.au/assets/Poli...licy-review-panel-meeting-minutes01052018.pdf

    For this to not be repealed would likely mean either the PRP changing its mind or scrapping the PRP, or the board not agreeing with the change.

    I was told about 12 months ago that Cameron & his policy person had it in for monetisation. I believe that is why it is on the PRP's list. If certain people on the board trying to reassure it would get voted down by the board it won't. I believe there is only 1 person on the board willing to go against the rest of the board on anything right now. The rest are yes men.
