.nz policy review - consultation
Consultation is now closed (19 February – 2 April 2021)
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.
InternetNZ is the home and guardian of .nz - providing the infrastructure, security, and support to keep it humming.
Last year a panel representing New Zealanders made recommendations on what changes InternetNZ should make to the .nz policies. These policies govern how InternetNZ manages .nz.
We have digested what the panel recommended and have re-written the rules and policies to reflect the panel’s thinking.
Seeking consultation on:
- our draft rewrite of the .nz policies
- our proposed method for implementing some of the .nz advisory panel’s recommendations
- some proposed policy changes to support the development of a new registry for .nz.
Below are the documents that make up this consultation. We have provided them as accessible PDFs and viewable Google Documents. You can make a copy of the Google Documents for your own reference.
