A brief note to mark a historic moment: late yesterday, the 2 millionth .au domain name was registered. To put that in context, back in 2002 (when current name policies were introduced), there were 275,000. Now .au is one of the 10 largest country code domains in the world, and we have just slightly less than one .au domain for every 10 people.
More Than 2 Million .au Domain Names Have Been Registered
