Nexigen Digital claims #1 spot for .au direct domain names

Nexigen Digital has today announced that as of August 2022, it is the number one provider of .au direct domain names, with one-in-four being registered and managed through either its retail channel, VentraIP, or its wholesale channel, Synergy Wholesale – beating all other accredited registrars including global brands GoDaddy and Crazy Domains, and local listed brand Webcentral (ASX:WCG).

Launched in March 2022, more than 300,000 .au direct names have been registered to date, with many more expected when all uncontested names become available on Tuesday, October 4 at 8:00AM (AEDT).

Co-founder and Co-CEO, Cheyne Jonstone said:

“We are immensely proud to be Australia’s #1 provider of this new domain name, both in domains under management and new registrations. Our entire team have done amazing work to ensure the process has been smooth and seamless for our customers, and that has clearly paid off.”

When asked, Jonstone attributed this achievement to being a local, trusted company.

“.au direct is all about being Australian. As the leading challenger brand in this space, this achievement underscores our commitment to remaining a 100% Australian-owned and operated company, with all of our team members being locals.

We are officially the home of .au – and that’s exciting”, he said.
