auDA is a not-for-profit for purpose organisation that works with a range of stakeholders including industry, government and the Australian and international community to develop and administer the rules for domains in the .au country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD).
The .au ccTLD is part of Australia’s critical infrastructure, and auDA has been endorsed by the Commonwealth Government to ensure it is a safe, accessible and trusted Australian public asset for all internet users. We also represent Australia’s interests internationally and have an agreement with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) – the international body covering ccTLDs.
