TPP Wholesale platform upgrade - registrar changing on all .au domains

Apr 7, 2020 Tech blog

Have you received an email from TPP Wholesale stating that the registrar on record is going to be formally transferred to Domain Directors? (see full email text below)

We have confirmed with TPP Wholesale that this correspondence sent out to all TPP .au domain owners is legitimate. TPP Wholesale is undergoing a platform upgrade and is consolidating all .au domain names onto a new reseller system called CentralNic. Domain Directors is CentralNic's .au accredited Registrar, more commonly known as Instra.

This process will be seamless for the domain owner and will happen behind the scenes. There will be no changes to how you access your domain(s) and the process will not affect the uptime of your domain.

There is no need to take any action, but please get in touch if you have any concerns or questions.
