Domain Name Commission calls for public comment

Domain Name Commission calls for public comment on .nz WHOIS review

6 October 2015

This release is available online at https://dnc.org.nz/story/domain-name-commission-calls-public-comment-nz-whois-review

As part of a wide-ranging two stage review, the Domain Name Commission Limited (DNCL) has today launched the first of two public consultations on the .nz WHOIS.

The WHOIS is the publicly available search service that that lets people find registration information for a .nz domain name. Using the WHOIS is commonly known as a ‘domain name search’.

In this first public consultation, members of the public and interested stakeholders are being asked to comment on a number of matters, including why .nz registrant data should / or should not be collected and made publicly available in the WHOIS.

To assist with people’s understanding of the .nz WHOIS and how it currently works, DNCL has put together a consultation paper and a one-page overview at https://dnc.org.nz/whois-review-consultation-1.

The deadline for making a submission on the first public consultation is 6 November 2015. Submissions can be made by email to policies@dnc.org.nz, or by mail to PO Box 11 881, Wellington.

A second consultation and public meetings in Christchurch, Auckland, Wellington and online will follow later in the year on what information is displayed in the WHOIS, and how.
