Adrian Kinderis, Managing Director of AusRegistry, the Registry Operator and wholesale provider for all commercial and non-commercial .au domain names concurs, stated, “Small to medium business owners are responsible for the majority of the .au domain name registrations, so we are thrilled that Elite Finance registered the 1 millionth .au registration. We hope that all Australians continue to support small businesses such as Elite Finance.”
