2014-08-18Second-Level .NZ registrations will start on September 30

As we informed you before, the .NZ name space on the second-level will be opened. The 15 official subdomains such as .CO.NZ and .ORG.NZ retain and are also available in the future.

Thus, beginning September 30 (13:00 NZST) available domain names directly under New Zealand’s ccTLD .NZ can be registered on a first-come, first-served basis.

At the same time, the six-month Preferential Registration Eligibility (PRE) period will be launched for registrants that already holds third-level .NZ domain names. This period will also begin at 13:00 New Zealand time on 30 September 2014 and end at 13:00, 30 March 2015. During this period existing registrants have the options to get the shorter version of their name before anyone else or reserve it for free for two years on the website of the registry.

If the desired name is already registered in at least two of the existing second-level extensions such as .CO.NZ or .ORG.NZ (Conflicted status), the so-called "Conflicted Process" shall apply to resolve the name conflict (existence of several legitimate registrants). Please follow the instructions on the website of the registry.

Thus, there are different options depending on the status of a domain name:

  • Status "Will be Available": Customers can try and register the shorter version of the name on a first-come, first-served basis from September 30.
  • Status "Will be PRR (Preferential Registration or Reservation)": Customers can register or reserve the shorter version of their name before anyone else.
  • Status "Will be Conflicted": To get the shorter version of their name customers will need to go through a conflict process from September 30.
  • Status "Will be Prohibited": No-one is able to register the shorter version of the name.

The status of a .NZ domain name can be checked on the website http://www.anyname.nz.

Please note that registrants will need the UDAI (Unique Domain Authorisation ID) of their third-level domain name to reserve a name or lodge a conflict preference on the anyname.nz website.  

Our price scale for .NZ domains:
39.00 NZD (Gold) / 44.00 NZD (Silver) / 52.00 NZD (Bronze) per year per domain

Domains with the status of "Will be Available" and "Will be PRR" can be registered using the AddDomain command as of September 30 via RRPproxy.

The following is the priority ranking of applicants:
First priority: Those in the Trademark Clearinghouse
London Priority 1: Those having a London address AND a right to a name (e.g. it matches their business name)
London Priority 2: Those having a London address for any name
London Priority 3: Those without a presence in London

2014-05-23Registration of .UK domain names possible as of June 10

As of June 10, 2014 (08:00 BST) Nominet will allow the registration of domain names directly under .UK, such as 'example.uk'.

The registry will offer all registrants of .CO.UK, .ORG.UK, and .ME.UK domain names that were registered prior to October 28, 2013, 23:59 BST (Cut-off Date) the privilege to register the shorter equivalent of their current address. This reservation is valid for 5 years until October 6, 2019 (07:59 BST). Until that date, registrants will have the opportunity to decide whether they want to use the shorter domain in addition to, or instead of the domain they already have. In the case of identical third-level domain names the holder of the .CO.UK domain will be favored over the registrant of a .ORG.UK or .ME.UK domain.

Thus, the registration of .UK domains for new customers are initially only possible if a domain name is not reserved. Nominet has updated their WHOIS tool to allow people to look up who (if anyone) holds the right of registration for an ‘example.uk’ domain. The Rights lookup tool can be found here.

Another new feature is that it is mandatory that the registrant is domiciled in the UK in order to be eligible to register a .UK domain name. We offer a trustee service if the registrant is not able to provide a local address.

The pricing for .UK domains is identical to the existing price scale for .CO.UK, .ORG.UK, and .ME.UK.

More details on the launch of the .UK domain names can be found in the RRPproxy Wiki.


Nominet Data Quality Policy:

In addition to the opening of the .UK namespace in the second-level, Nominet has introduced another change: The Data Quality Policy applies since May 7 and intends to ensure that only complete (Data completeness check) and correct data (Data validation process) is used for registration. Therefore, as of now, Nominate validates the owner information (name / organization, address) of new registrations and modifications against the lists of several partners, such as the Royal Mail Postcode Address file.

If the owner details can not be validated against these lists, you will receive a notification from us. Proof of identity must be sent in written form to the e-mail address "contactdata-validation@key-systems.net" within 14 business days following the notification. An identity proof may be a copy of the registrant's ID or other documents. If no response is received in time, the domain is suspended. As of September 22, non-validated registrant data will first lead to the suspension and after 30 days to the deletion of the domain.

The details of a complete data set can be find here in our Wiki.

2014-01-08Renewal of .NZ third level domains recommended

The .NZ registry has noted that registrants are currently releasing their .NZ third level domains because they would like to register the respective domain name at the second level as soon as possible.

Please note the hint of the .NZ registry that, if a domain name is released at the third level, the registrant will not have the protection to be able to register or reserve it at the second level.
