Domain Name Abuse Forum

Finding solutions for a safer .nz space.

The Domain Name Abuse Forum invites you to participate and contribute to discussions and working sessions that aim to identify the issues surrounding domain name abuse. Forum attendees will work together to understand the issues and discuss and identify how to best tackle these challenges, including:

  • whether or how the .nz domain name space should deal with content abuse, e.g. online shopping and scam websites

  • how to minimise data quality issues from the .nz domain name space, e.g. fake or invalid registration details

  • how we can minimise and mitigate technical attacks on the .nz domain name space and protect this vital infrastructure.

The forum will be a space for collaboration between agencies inviting lawyers and law enforcement, Internet safety and security experts, government departments, academics, civil society and more.  

All of this to make .nz a safer and more trusted domain name space.
