.AU priority process
Updated Wednesday March 9th 2022 / Category Domain Names

Any .au direct names that match a domain already registered in the .au namespace are going to be offered to existing registrants for the first 6 months under a Priority Allocation period and locked from public registration. This period will last from launch on 24th March 2022 until 20th September 2022.
