.nz policies

The .nz domain name space is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) assigned to Aotearoa New Zealand. It represents us on the Internet and is managed for the benefit of us all. 

There are a number of policies we’ve developed for .nz. The Domain Name Commission is responsible for regulating and enforcing them. 

The current .nz Rules came into effect on 1 November 2022, alongside the new .nz registry

Please contact our policy team at policy@internetnz.net.nz if you have any questions about the .nz Rules framework.
