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 - 10,000 domains.
It is not possible to register domains through 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 registration or renewal transaction on behalf of CXDA. This fee is CXDA's sole source of revenue. The modest revenue it is sufficient to cover expenses related to legal/auditing, monitoring abuse, and the community email service. cxDA officers are volunteers and receive no compensation.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.

COMPLAINT RESOLUTION SERVICE (CRS)
cxDA, the TLD manager for the CX cTLD has adopted the CoCCA CRS. The CoCCA CRS provides a transparent, efficient and cost effective way for the public, law enforcement, regulatory bodies, and intellectual property owners to have their concerns regarding use of a TLD service addressed.
The CoCCA CRS addresses not only rights to a particular domain but also the registrant's use of that domain. 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 registrants' licence to use a domain requires them to comply with the applicable AUP, a failure to do so and/or to remedy an AUP breach if requested, may result in a suspension of a domain and its removal from the zone.
Any party who believes a domain name registrant has violated a participating TLD manager’s AUP must provide a formal complaint in order for CoCCA to investigate and evaluate the claim or complaint.
