2021-06-30 .nz registrar technical forum invite

Kia ora

With the new .nz registry being developed, we’d like to invite you to join the registrar technical forum and participate in InternetNZ’s consultation with the .nz registrar community.

Why do I need to join?

The technical forum is an excellent opportunity for you to consult with InternetNZ on some technical aspects of the new registry and how we will be doing things on the new platform, as well as get early access to the test environment.

Time commitment

We expect it to be regular 1-1.5 hour online meetings. The frequency will be discussed at the first meeting.

Who will be there

During the forum meetings, you’ll have an opportunity to discuss the new .nz registry features with fellow registrars and the InternetNZ team.


Video call via Google Meets.

First .nz registrar technical forum meeting

Tentatively, the first forum meeting will take place online on 14 July, 8.30 am NZST and will take up to 1.5 hours. We’ll discuss the registry replacement timelines and migration approach, the domain name lifecycle and alignment of the new system with the new .nz policy, as well as some of the known main interface and data migration changes.

How do I join?

Just hit ‘reply’ and let us know. We’ll add you to the list and send the calendar invite shortly. If you think other members of your team need to be there, send us their names and email addresses, too.

Do I need specific technical knowledge?

Yes, it’d be good to nominate a technical person to participate in the forum to get the most out of it.

Your input is very important to us and we hope you’ll join the technical forum. It will help us to make better decisions along the way and together we will build a world-class .nz registry that’s reliable and easy to use.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
