Domain Name Changes

‘Second level’ domains like the .co in ‘.co.nz’ and the .org in ‘.org.nz’ are now optional. You can get .nz names with them, without them, or both.

You may be aware of some of the recent changes to the New Zealand Domain names system that allows you to register a shorter version of your domain name.

As one of our .nz domain name customers, we wanted to let you know more about this and the options you have.

Existing "second level domains" – like the .co in .co.nz and the .org in .org.nz are now optional and people could register with them, without them, or both.

For example a person could register anyname.nz as well as anyname.co.nz. The change to allow shorter .nz names like anyname.nz is being made by the Domain Name Commission and are available now.

What does this mean for you?

The shorter version of your domain name is available now for general registration on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you want to get the shorter version we’re offering a pre-registration service where - come 1pm 30 September 2014 - we’ll try and register the name for you.
