Hello Jayne,

There are a range of companies offering domain name registration services in

They can be divided into 3 broad categories:
- registrars accredited by auDA (only these companies have direct access to
the registry
- authorised resellers of registrars
- companies we no contracts with either auDA or registrars.

Only registrars and authorised resellers are contractually bound to adhere
to a code of practice with respect to renewal notices.

If you want to find out who your current registrar is, do a WHOIS check on
the name
at the new registry:

If you want to know if a particular company is an authorised reseller of the
registrar, then contact the relevant registrar identified above.  In the
case of Melbourne IT, we can tell you which authorised reseller last renewed
your domain name.

Subject: [DNS] Domain registration through Enetica

I have just registered a domain through Enetica. In the past you
would not move me from MelbourneIT, but Enetica's service took under 5
minutes. I'm very impressed.
