auDA is aware of a disruption to service with the registrar Enetica and its associated companies. We want to assure you that auDA is working with the registry (Ausregistry) and is seeking clarification from the registrar (Enetica) in order to understand the cause and expected duration of the outage.
As a precautionary security measure we have suspended Enetica's access to the registry.
To be clear, domain names registered with these companies are safe and will not be deleted whilst auDA is investigating, but any .au domain owners who have hosting agreements with organisations other than Enetica or their associated companies, should contact their hosting provider for assistance in obtaining a copy of their website, if you are concerned.
We will keep you updated on the auDA website with news and also our twitter handle - @auda.
