Melbourne, Victoria. 19th April, 2010
AusRegistry Pty Ltd, the Australian .au Registry provider, is pleased to announce that Fabulous.com.au Pty Ltd trading as Drop.com.au has recently become an accredited .au Registrar. Fabulous.com.au is part of the Dark Blue Sea group of companies whose activities centre around the provision of online direct navigation traffic.
"Dark Blue Sea and its associated products (Fabulous.com, FabulousDomains.com, DomainDistributionNetwork.com) are strong global brands in the wider online industry. Their decision to become an accredited .au Registrar is exciting for the namespace, which continues to experience very solid growth", said AusRegistry Pty Ltd's CEO Adrian Kinderis.
Kinderis continues, "Given that we are seeing increased activity in the .au aftermarket and Fabulous.com.au is an active participant globally in the aftermarket, we expect to see further upward movement in this area".
George Pongas, Business Development Manager at Drop.com.au commented, "With an ever increasing demand for quality .au domains from both corporate clients and businesses in general, becoming an accredited .au Registrar was a sound strategic move for Drop in this dynamic and emerging market place".
Fabulous.com.au is one of several new .au Registrars since auDA (.au regulatory body) re-opened the .au namespace to new Registrars in mid 2009. The continued success of the .au namespace has seen international Registrar like Fabulous.com.au becoming accredited with more international Registrars showing interest.
AusRegistry is located in Melbourne, Australia and is the current Registry Operator and wholesale provider for all commercial domain names including .com.au and .net.au and non-commercial domain names, .gov.au and .edu.au.
AusRegistry was first awarded the .au tender in 2002 and holds an exclusive Registry Licence Agreement with the regulatory body, .au Domain Administration Ltd (auDA). This license was recently extended by auDA for AusRegistry to provide Registry Services until 2014 due to the ongoing superior technical and administrative management of the namespace.
