Domain Name Commission to extend .nz name space

Wednesday 30 May 2012 | 02:51 CET | News
New Zealand's Domain Name Commission is proposing to extend the .nz domain name space by allowing anybody to register domain names at the 'second level'. Key features of the .nz proposals include: registration of .nz domain names could be at the second or third levels on an ongoing basis, existing second level domains (such as .co.nz) will remain and continue to be supported, registrations at the second level will be on a "first come, first served" basis, except during the Sunrise Period and where there are currently multiple registrations of the same name in different second level domains.
