Voices For Freedom Domain Name Suspension
Published 10 September 2021
On 09 September 2021 the domain names voicesforfreedom.nz and voicesforfreedom.co.nz were suspended.
The domain names were suspended following the Domain Name Commission’s enquiries into the accuracy of the registration details for the domain names. The Commission initiated an investigation following complaints made to it.
The Domain Name Commission has suspended the domain names in accordance with enforcing data validation measures under the .nz Principles and Responsibilities policy.
The individuals who registered the domain names did not verify their contact details — and having valid contact details is a prerequisite for any .nz domain name holder.
The Commission wants .nz to be a safe, trusted and secure domain name space that is supported by its data validation process.
Update 10 September 2021 - voicesforfreedom.co.nz has since been reinstated.
