Membership

Membership of auDA is open to all stakeholders of the Australian domain name system. This includes domain name holders (registrants), industry participants and the general public (see below for membership classes).

Membership entitles you to vote at General Meetings of auDA (see clause 16.1 of the auDA Constitution).

Members are expected to adhere to a Code of Conduct in communications with each other and with auDA. Adherence to this is required of all members. 

Applications for membership must be approved by the auDA Board (see clause 9.9 of the auDA Constitution). auDA may contact applicants to confirm details of their application and membership class eligibility.

Membership Classes

There are two classes of auDA membership:

  1. Supply Class - for domain name industry participants (registry operators, registrars and resellers)
  2. Demand Class - for domain name holders (registrants), internet users and the general public

The classes are defined in clauses 9.3- 9.6 of the auDA Constitution.

Membership Fees

The auDA membership period runs 1 July to 30 June the following year. New members are required to pay a one-off membership entrance fee when applying for membership:

 Supply Class -   $110 (GST inc)
 Demand Class -   $22 (GST inc)


This fee covers membership administration and provides membership until the next renewal date, e.g. if you join as a new member part-way through the membership year, such as in February, you are liable to pay the membership entrance fee for your class. Your membership will then be due for renewal in June the same year with the annual membership fee then payable. 

The annual membership fees are as follows:

 Supply Class -   $110 (GST inc)
 Demand class -   $22 (GST inc)
