SynergyWholesale email .au Domain Eligibility - Action Required

Is every .au Registrar required to check the domain eligibility of existing domains, and notify customers... or is this a SynergyWholesale initiative only?
As far as I know, no. They are however required to verify eligibility details at renewal time, so they appear to be getting in early and helping registrants sort out any potential issues before it's too late.

Hi,

Every registrar needs to make sure that a domain registrant has an active ACN/ABN if used for eligibility on a domain that is registered.

There are no rules about notification so that part is up to each registrar.

Drop/Netfleet customers that were found to have issues with their eligibility were contacted months ago as it can take a while to rectify issues with cancelled ACN/ABNs.

It's a pain in the arse tbh.

What happens if details need to be changed? Do we initiate COR and pay fee?

What happens for .org.au that no longer qualify? They then need to switch everything to .com.au or .asn.au or whatever ? IT and website presence costs will be a small fortune to some

It’s a major pain in the backside for both the registrant and the registrar, one I’m sure is not deliberate..
ASIC should also raise the domain name associated with a ‘to be cancelled’ business via email notification.

Trademark ....

Every registrar needs to validate eligibility, so if a Trademark is used and in particular if you are an international company with an AU trademark, then you need to make sure that trademark is an exact match otherwise they no longer are eligible to renew that domain.
