New Domain Name regime to go-live on 1 July 2002

Melbourne, 11 June 2002 - auDA today announced that the new domain name
regime for com.au, net.au, asn.au, org.au and id.au will go-live on 1
July 2002. 

Final testing of the new registry, built by AusRegistry Pty Ltd, was
completed on 7 June 2002. Two independent reports (one from
international registry Liberty RMS) have provided auDA with confirmation
that the registry has been completed pursuant to the Technical
Specification in the Registry Licence Agreement. 

The go-live date of 1 July 2002 has been set to ensure enough time for
an orderly transition of data from the existing registries and to allow
the provisionally accredited registrars to complete auDA's
Registry-Registrar interface test. 

Following a series of transition tests, actual data transition will take
place on the weekend of 29 and 30 June 2002. During this 2 day period
the domain name space will continue to operate normally but it will not
be possible to register new domain names or re-delegate domain name

"auDA is confident that AusRegistry's system will be one of the most
secure and technologically advanced in the world" said auDA CEO, Chris

auDA's new Domain Name Eligibility and Allocation Policy Rules for Open
2LDs (http://www.auda.org.au/docs/auda-policy-rules.pdf) will also come
into force on 1 July 2002 

auDA will email more information about the new regime to all registrants
on go-live.
