The .au country domain has now reached 1 million, after 5 years of strong growth; according to AusRegistry. It says that the domain has grown 25% each year for the past 5 years; saying this can be attributed to the reduced domain pricing, regulated environment and technical stability.
Chris Disspain, CEO of auDA (the .au Domain Administrator) said in a statement that the .au domain was “highly respected internationally.”
In a recent report from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD); Australia was reported of having the 13th highest domain registrations out of all the OECD members. Australia was also placed 14th highest growth in domain registrations.
