    My dealings with auDA over the last 6+ months of a Registrar Application have been frustrating to say the least.

    Constant roadblocks, misunderstanding their own policies (then flip flopping when corrected) and just a general lack of communication (It can take weeks to even get a reply, even with follow-ups). A more cynical man might think it’s intentional.

    One of auDA’s core principles is to:

    – Promote principles of competition, fair trading and consumer protection.

    I really don’t think they’re living up to this one.

      Hi Cam, sorry to hear about your frustrations and I also remain frustrated with auDA and this domain name industry on many levels.

      Rumours I currently hear circulating on various levels are concerning. I’m currently trying to figure out which ones are actually worth writing about?

      Stay the course mate as Australian businesses desperately needs a new drop catcher competitor to end the current drop-catching monopoly. I’m sure your hard work will prevail.

    According to this page, https://www.linkedin.com/posts/auda-au-domain-administration_last-week-we-released-audas-2020-21-annual-activity-6859315532798275584-ye81 auDA has performed 16 baseline security audits. But according to this page https://www.auda.org.au/accredited-registrars there are 35 accredited registrars. Does this mean less than 50% have completed their baseline security audits? Are some registrars not secure? Is there a risk?

    I hereby request that auDA publishes the list of registrars that have completed their baseline security audit so that we can make an informed choice for securing our domains.

    Let’s hope that they can complete the remaining 19 registrars soon so that they can:
    * Drive up the integrity of the .au domain
    * Drive world’s best practice security
