Internet Domain Name Structure for .au
Thu, 5 Oct 1995 14:25:25 +1000
So for the benefit of those who can't access the Web page, I presume we are
all supposed to look at the following:
>The registered name is, in the general case, the corporate name, and/or
trading >name, or logical abbreviations of these names. Additional
information is >required by the delegated authority to support registration
of names which do >not conform to the general schema of corporate-name.com.au

I've never registered a domain name, but aunic seems a helluva lot stricter
than the US internic. That's up to them, but I don't understand why book
names can't be domain names while magazine names can (click.com.au,
hyper.com.au, pcuser.com.au, etc... the corporate parent names being
Radiant, Next and ACP, all of which are also registered as com.au domains).
Anyone got more examples of product names being used as domains in Australia?
