The new .COURSES TLD extension is specifically for Open Australia Universities. This domain will operate as a restricted registry for the purpose of promoting online courses only within the OAU network. OAU is a non-profit organization owned by seven major Australian universities, with a drive to provide relevant and credible educational resources online. Dot COURSES supports this mission because it is a trustworthy namespace for students, professors, universities, and affiliates, to communicate, network, and promote.
The goal of the .courses domain extension is to provide a new way for OAU to better identify their websites with their constituents and users. Registering a .courses domain will identify your business within the OAU network immediately. The use of .courses along with your company name is certain to give your website a strong, secure, and reliable presence on the Internet and instill confidence in your constituency. Be sure to register your .courses domain today.
