Change in Registrar name for your .AU Domain

Posted on 27th April, 2022

WHAT

The registrar on record for all .AU domain names under your management will change from Public Domain Registry Pty Ltd to Web Address Registration Pty Ltd. To facilitate this change, we have requested the .AU registry to perform a bulk transfer. No updates can be made to your .AU domain name(s) while the bulk transfer is underway. We recommend you complete any urgent domain renewal, contact update or DNS updates before the migration window commences.

This action will have no impact on services such as websites or email that are running on your domain names, these should work as normal during the migration.

WHEN

This transfer is scheduled for 4 May 2022. To ensure synchronization across our platforms and the registry, new .AU domain name registrations and transfers will be disabled for 48 hours before the transfer begins. The detailed migration schedule is shared below.
