Domain Name Enquiries

We are currently developing our systemic and investigation function when it comes to data quality issues. For example, for data quality issues that the Domain Name Commission expedites, we check to see if there are additional domain names registered to this registrant. At times, we see trends of domain names with data quality issues being registered in quick succession. By identifying these themes and trends earlier, it allows the Domain Name Commission to proactively put these domain names through our Data Validation process.

This year we continued to monitor the .nz domain name space for COVID-19 registered domain names. Between February 2021 and the end of May 2021 we took additional monitoring measures in relation to COVID-19 related .nz domain names. We worked closer with our MOU Partner CertNZ in this space.
