auDA’s position on leasing domain names is that the registrant (as listed in the registry database) remains responsible for the domain name, regardless of any arrangement that it may have with a third party to use the domain name. As far as auDA is concerned, a third party user does not have any rights in relation to the domain name. For example, if auDA receives an eligibility complaint about the domain name then it will investigate whether or not the registrant is eligible. If it determines that the registrant is not eligible then it will delete the domain name, regardless of whether a third party is using it.
