.au domain registrations pass 2.5 million

Posted by Tom Valcanis on 28 August 2012

The latest figures released by auDA and AusRegistry show continued growth in registration numbers has pushed the total number of .au domain names over 2.5 million.

Since passing 2 million registrations in March 2011, the .au namespace has grown at a steady pace thanks to the combined efforts of accredited registrars in promoting .au as Australia’s home on the Internet. Approximately 86% of all .au domain names are registered under .com.au.

The milestone places .au in the top 10 largest country codes in the world and is a testament to the strength and stability of the namespace and its value to the Australian community.
