Consolidation of .au domain names from legacy 'ventraipwholesale' accreditation

On 14 February 2018 any legacy domain name held in the accreditation of VentraIP Wholesale will be transferred to Synergy Wholesale. This process is completed without any intervention from registrants or partners, and is subject to auDA policy and approval.

Under this policy, we are required to send a notification to affected registrants 30 days and 7 days before the transfer is actioned. It is important to remember that no action is needed by you or the registrant and that no downtime will result from this change.

The 30 day notice below is being sent to affected registrants on Monday, 15 January 2018:
