AusRegistry International, a wholly owned subsidiary of AusRegistry, the Registry Operator for all commercial and non-commercial .au domain names (including .com.au and .gov.au), went live in the United Arab Emirates providing the Registry Software Services for the .ae ccTLD on August 3.
AusRegistry International (ARI) was selected by the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) in the UAE, to provide a complete Registry solution to assist the TRA develop a new administrative, policy and technical framework in order to place the .ae ccTLD in line with international best practice.
ARI has also provided customisation of the Registry software to meet the TRA requirements and training for TRA staff in order to manage the Registry Systems.
With the assistance of ARI, the TRA have also formed the .ae Domain Administration (.aeDA) to manage and administer all policies in relation to the .ae domain name.
âI am incredibly proud of the efforts of the AusRegistry International staff working here in the UAE. They have devoted many months to ensuring this projectâs success. We believe the Registry System deployed is best of breed and will ensure a robust and stable .ae namespace and previously unrealised levels of service,â said ARIâs CEO, Adrian Kinderis.
ARIâs Registry Software is able to handle the various policy requirements and business requirements that are specific to the region. Adrian Kinderis stated âARI has benefited greatly from the experience of the UAE. We are currently in talks with other countries in the Middle East and hope to announce some further strategic partnerships soon and more ccTLDs utilising our softwareâ
The implementation project within the UAE comes at a time when ARI is preparing to offer its Registry Services not just to other ccTLDs but to a much more diverse market. The same technology that ARI has developed for the UAE will soon be offered to potential applicants in the ICANNâs new generic Top Level Domain Program.
