A not-for-profit membership-based company incorporated in Australia with it's principle place of business on Christmas Island (an external territory of Australia). Christmas Island Domain Administration (cxDA) was established in 2000 for the following purposes:
The cx TLD is a small ccTLD - 11,000 domains.
It is not possible to register domains throught CXDA, under the "three R model" domains must be registered through a registrar or reseller. Currently there are over 150 .cx registrars/resellers with direct access to the .cx registry.
The central registry has been outsourced to CoCCA. CoCCA collects AUD $1.75 from each registraton or renewal transaction on behalf of CXDA. This fee is CXDA's sole source of revenue.Download the CXDA-CoCCA Registry Agreement.
Policy for the CX ccTLD has been drafted to:
CXDA desires to comply with the highest standards of personal data protection. Currently we consider the highest standards to be those established by the European General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR). Consequently, we endeavour to provide the same protections afforded to European citizens to all of our users regardless of origin, rather than adopting the slate of policies of any particular country or region.
Your personal data may be provided to:
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
If we have your data because we are performing services for you or an organisation you represent, then your information will be retained for the duration of the services and for 6 years thereafter, unless otherwise agreed.
CXDA may, at its sole discretion, aggregate, delete, or restrict access to portions of the data we store, but do not represent that CXDA will do so in any particular case.

The CXDA Complaint Resolution Service ( CRS ) supports registry-level suspensions and consists of three parts:
CXDA is one of a dozen ccTLDs that have adopted the CoCCA AUP - based policy framework and utilise the CoCCA CRS. This framework addresses not only rights to a particular text string ( domain ) but the registrant's use of that string. Policies apply recursively and are applicable not only to the domains in the registry but apply equally to any subordinate domain created by the registrant.
The registrant's licence to use a domain requires that they comply with the applicable AUP, a failure to comply with the AUP or to remedy a breach of the AUP may result in a suspension of a domain and it's removal from the zone.
Lodging a complaint and amicable complaint resolution are free services. Binding arbitration is carried out by external experts and is a fee-based service ( normally applicable to the resolution of complex intellectual property issues ).To lodge a complaint fill in the AUP Form and email it to | email@example.com
