.nz registrar satisfaction survey
It’s time for our annual registrar satisfaction survey. This annual survey is our chance to listen, learn, and get insights from you about your experience with the .nz registry and our support team. We will use the results to shape our service for you in the future, to ensure the new registry meets your needs, your team is supported, and you love working with .nz.
You will receive the .nz registrar satisfaction survey on the week of 26 September. The email will come from AskYourTeam — the service that conducts the survey for us. It’ll take just a few minutes to answer the questions, and you can share as much or as little as you like.
We look forward to your feedback.
