InternetNZ | Ipurangi Aotearoa serves the New Zealand community as the designated manager for the .nz country code top-level domain, recognised as such by ICANN.

The role of .nz

InternetNZ | Ipurangi Aotearoa also operates the registry for .nz, which means that we keep the definitive register of .nz domain names and we are responsible for the framework policy relating to the .nz Domain Name Space. We also operate the Authoritative DNS servers for .nz, without which these domain names would not work.

We do not sell domain names directly to the public but through authorised registrars who buy domain names from us on behalf of their customers. All transactions with us take place using our fully automated provisioning system, which is available 24-hours a day.

A full list of registrars is available here
