The latest Behind the Dot – State of the .au Domain features results from the annual .au survey report; which indicate awareness of and trust in .au domains remains strong.
The survey attracted responses from more than 3,000 Australians.
Among the findings, two thirds of .au domain holding respondents said they chose to register .au names as the extension is the most popular in Australia and/or best represents Australian organisations. A similar percentage of respondents said they were more likely to trust a .au website.
However, the proportion of respondents holding .au domain names has decreased; prompting AusRegistry, authors of the report, to recommend that this be further investigated.
The survey also found awareness of new generic Top-Level Domains (new gTLDs) remains low.
The 2015 survey ran over approximately two weeks in late May through to to early June 2015.
