Behind the Dot – The State of the .au Domain, is the first in a series of quarterly Industry reports produced by AusRegistry.

Behind the Dot deviates from typical domain reports, with a reinvigorated approach to reporting domain statistics and industry related information. The magazine style publication presents an array of .au facts and figures (some which have never been reported before) accompanied by expert commentary and analysis.

In another first, AusRegistry presents .au DNS traffic statistics and discusses the growth of IPv6 in the region. .au Domain Administration (auDA) also contribute a governance update and present policy delete and reinstatement statistics on a quarterly basis.

The report takes on a regional approach incorporating domain information from a number of countries in the Asia Pacific region. Included is a graph displaying domain numbers from 10 APTLD countries.

Behind the Dot does not replace, but rather complements AusRegistry’s monthly general reports which are posted to each month.

An accompanying ‘Behind the Dot’ infographic has been produced to complement the report.
