    Does anyone have a large .com.au portfolio (i.e. well over 100 names) and has been reviewed for compliance by auDA and 1) had to delete all or most of their names for non-compliance, or 2) was able to prove that your portfolio was in compliance?
    If so, what are the best methods to ensure protection of your portfolio? What is the best rationale for holding a large portfolio of names e.g. operating a branding agency? Or is it complete luck of the draw?
    I am sitting on a large portfolio and for obvious reasons would like to protect it. Any insight would be appreciated.

    Thanks. Other than your own platform, which is the next best in your opinion? Majority of names are with Drop.com.au. I know the parent company also owns Above.com. What is the best option to park them while having the names with Drop i.e. by simply changing the Name Servers?

    My advice would be to diversify into other extensions, .com.au is incredibly risky with all of these deletions.

    Bodis.com is excellent for parking and sales landers.

    Happy to agree, Mat used to show his face on Namepros .... although that would be not so smart these days. It has become a different entity
