Hosts

Host behaviours

.nz superordinate names

Only the sponsor of a .nz superordinate domain name can create the subordinate host object. For example, you could not create ns1.exampletestdomain.co.nz if exampletestdomain.co.nz was registered with another registrar.

When a .nz superordinate name is transferred, then the subordinate host object is also transferred to the new sponsor.

When a .nz superordinate domain name goes into redemption period and the host object is linked to other domains then:

  • A ‘delegation lost’ poll message is sent to registrars; and

  • The host associations are removed (note if a domain is left with only one associated host, a validation error will be received on the next update attempt).

When a .nz superordinate domain name is restored and the host object was previously linked to other domains, then:

  • A ‘delegation recovered’ poll message is sent to registrars; and

  • The host associations are reinstated.

When a .nz superordinate domain name is deleted from the database, then the subordinate host record is also deleted.
