Currently domain names under the Australian TLD .au can only be registered on the so called 3’d level. Such a domain name then ends in for example .com.au, .net.au or .id.au. The Australian registry has now officially declared that they will allow direct .au registration in the foreseeable future. Recently also the UK dropped “.co” from “.co.uk” and other countries like New Zeeland and Botswana, who just like Australia happen to have a history linked to the UK, did the same thing.
