Resolve a self-conflicted domain name?
A self-conflicted domain name is where the same registrant (yourself) holds all the second level variants of the conflicted domain name.
We have put together this guide, if you have any questions that relate to a self-conflicted domain name that this guide doesn’t cover, please contact us here.
Thanks for clicking through to find out more about self-conflicted .nz domain names. Please note that the word ‘conflict’ refers to the domain names involved, not the holder/s of the domain names.
What is a self-conflicted domain name?
A self-conflicted domain name is a .nz domain name that is available but is unable to be registered until it is resolved, for example:
If you had registered the domains anyname.co.nz and anyname.org.nz then anyname.nz is considered self-conflicted as you are the registrant of all the domains in the conflict set.
You would then be able to resolve anyname.nz yourself.
What is a conflict set?
Using the above example, for the conflicted domain name anyname.nz:
anyname.co.nz and anyname.org.nz are part of the ‘conflict set’.
How to resolve your self-conflicted domain name
If you are the registrant of all of the domain names in the conflict set and want to resolve the self-conflicted name, you should:
- Go to the lodge your preference portal
- Login using one of your existing .nz domain names and its UDAI. Your UDAI is the Unique Domain Authentication ID for that domain name, you can find out more about UDAIs here.
- Select the preference “I want to try and get the shorter version of my domain name” for this existing domain name; press ‘submit’ and follow the process to its end.
- For the other domain names, select the preference “I don’t want the shorter version of my domain name and don’t care who gets it”.
- Remember that you need to repeat this process separately for each of your self-conflicted domain names.
This will resolve the self-conflict. Whichever domain name you’ve selected the first option for (“I want to try and get the shorter version of my domain name”) will be the domain name that has the right to register the new, shorter domain name direct at .nz.
You’ll then have two months from the date of the resolution to register the new domain name through a registrar of your choice.
