You may remember we initially noticed and contacted the owner of Australia.net.au to let him know he’d lost his domain name. He was “gutted” and rightfully so.
Well, you will be pleased to know that today it appears there are one or two people at auDA who are indeed listening to domain industry gripes and proactively doing something to fix “wrongs”.
There must have been quite a number of meetings and a bit of work involved in this, reinstating the australia.net.au to the original owner who had owned it for 22 years when it was ripped away from him due to the controversially updated Reserved Policy List (which still has a lot wrong with it, as I’m sure will be revealed again in the not-too-distant future!)
However, for now… Well done auDA. Please keep it up!
