AusRegistry Spreads Its Mid East Wings as Registry for Qatar

AusRegistry International, the registry for .AU (Australia) and .AE (United Arab Emirates) has added .QA (Qatar) to its stable. The new contract sees it providing Domain Name Registry Software and consulting services for establishing a new administrative body to manage the .QA country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD).

The new contract is with the Supreme Council of Information and Communication Technology (ictQATAR) and sees AusRegistry International’s Domain Name Registry Software and associated services utilised for the management and operation of the existing .QA ccTLD and the Arabic script representation of ‘Qatar’ when approved by ICANN.

“AusRegistry International is delighted to have been selected by ictQATAR to provide a customised Domain Name Registry Solution and associated services for the .QA ccTLD,” said AusRegistry International’s CEO Adrian Kinderis.

“The .QA Domain Name Registry is a critical national asset and we have the experience and expertise to deliver a world-class solution that will serve the Qatari people for many years to come.”

Meanwhile, the praise was equally forthcoming from ictQATAR.

“We look forward to working with AusRegistry International to build a secure and stable domain names registry for the State of Qatar,” said ictQATAR regulatory Authority Technical Affairs Manger Saleh Al-Kuwari.

The contract to manage the .QA ccTLD follows its selection to run the .AE ccTLD in 2006 by the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of the United Arab Emirates.
