Until 20 September 2022, registrants of existing Australian domain names (.com.au) can register an exactly matching short domain (.au) on a priority basis. After this date, such short domains will become available to the general public. This means if you do not act shortly, there is a risk your domain name may fall into the hands of cybersquatters.

Please reach out to Georgina Hey or Mindaugas Skavronskas for more information or alternatively, see our original article from March 2022.
